Evaluation Criteria

We carefully review each application and encourage students to respond candidly and openly to each question. We care a great deal about what motivates our Fellows and their desire to continuously grow both personally and professionally.

We look for high-character students who are driven and motivated to engage actively in legal discussion - ready to contribute to society through the exercise of their profession.

We evaluate each candidate individually and comprehensively, meaning that weaknesses in one or more areas can be overcome with strengths elsewhere.

These are some of the core characteristics we look for in our Fellows:

  • Strong academic history

  • Demonstrated legal interest

  • Leadership skills

  • Engagement in extracurricular activities

  • Social responsibility

  • Professionalism

  • Spirit of comradeship

  • Team-player
