Fellows spend their week tackling different legal challenges every day.
A week in the life of a fellow is filled with different challenges and learning opportunities. No day is like the one preceding it, but all days follow a similar structure.
Mornings (Monday - Friday)
Firm Meetings. Lex Fellows meet with firms every morning from 9:00 am to - 1:00 pm. The first hour of the meeting is spent getting to know the firm’s partner and listening to his introductory remarks regarding his specific field and practice.
Afterwards, the Fellows work for two hours on a real-life case that is provided by the firm. In some instances, the fellows will be asked to produce a different array of legal documents.
Throughout this time, fellows work hand in hand with their Legal Advisors. Because of the complexity of the cases and the law, Fellows are asked to come prepared having read each case’s documentation.
The last hour is spent evaluating the results the fellows have come up with, listening to the firm’s associates’ legal insight and expertise first-hand.
Lunch & Network. Twice a week the Lex Fellows are given the opportunity to enjoy lunch at the conclusion of a firm meeting. These lunches are great opportunities for the fellows to know the firm’s partner’s and associates one-on-one.
Afternoons (Monday - Friday)
Institutional Visits. After firm meetings, we spend two afternoons a week visiting different governmental institutions. We meet with officers across the different branches of government and with international organizations that focus on keeping societal order.
Legal Conferences. One afternoon every week we host a different renown speaker to present a current legal issue that the world is engaged in.
Professional Training. We know that professional training is incredibly important to our Fellows. That is why we continuously provide opportunities to learn about resume building, interview skills, and life at the office.
Every Saturday the Lex Fellowship host an optional full-day excursion, where the Fellows travel to nearby cities and attractions and go on exciting adventures.
Fellows are free for the rest of the weekend to enjoy the cultural richness of the city they’re in. We encourage fellows to immerse themselves in the history, art, and cuisine that surrounds them, knowing opportunities like these come once in a lifetime.
