Firm. Lunch. Firm. Fun.

No day is just like the one preceding it. That said, the days do follow a similar structure, and Fellows can expect to follow a pattern similar to the following:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday

7:30am: Wake up, prepare for the day, have breakfast provided by the Fellowship

8:30am: Take the metro to the first firm

9:30am: Meet with the firm's lawyers and managing partners about the firm, their field of law, what they've learned, what a day in the life is like, and, then, go through the white paper case with them, offering your own insights, thoughts, and perspectives

12:30: Break for lunch

2:00pm: Take the metro to the second firm

2:30pm: Follow a similar pattern as that of the first visit

5:30pm: End-of-day meeting to discuss the day, make adjustments, and discuss tomorrow's plan

6:00pm: Break for the day; Fellows have free time


On Wednesdays, the Fellows are given a break to relax and go on an excursion. Excursions will typically last half the day, and may include:

  • Traveling to Toledo, Spain
  • Exploring local museums and parks
  • Other local attractions


Fellows are free on weekends to explore Madrid and relax. There is typically no Fellowship programming on the weekends.
