Welcome, Fellows!

Every year since 2011, the LCLD Fellows Program has grown to include more than 2,500 top diverse, mid-career legal talent. You’re now part of that community and we welcome you to form new relationships, take advantage of personal and professional development, and interact with some of the United States’ top corporate General Counsel and law firm Managing Partners.

The Fellows Program year will include full class meetings, small group sessions, accountability partners, and regional events. There will be a range of opportunities and we encourage you to take advantage of as many of them as possible. No two Fellows will have the same experience and it's up to you to choose how you will take advantage of all the program has to offer.

This page is your resource for all things Fellows-related, including event information, the LCLD Directory, and newsletters. Now, jump right in and embark on your Fellows journey!
