Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP believes that increasing diversity within the legal profession is essential to fulfilling the law’s promise within society. The MTO Fellows Program offers a limited number of full-time paid positions in our Los Angeles office to recent college graduates who are interested in pursuing a career in the law.
Successful applicants are candidates that possess a record of academic achievement, demonstrated leadership and initiative, and community involvement, which indicate the potential for success in law school and in the legal profession. We seek individuals who show the potential to contribute meaningfully to the diversity of the legal profession, including, but not limited to, candidates who are members of racial or ethnic minority groups, are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, are physically challenged, or are from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds.
Fellows are expected to work in our Los Angeles office for a period of one year prior to attending law school. Fellows will be eligible to receive a stipend to enroll in an LSAT preparation course and work on a flexible or reduced time basis while they prepare for the LSAT. This program is geared to those that have not yet applied to or been accepted to law school.
We are now accepting applications for the MTO Fellows Program. Your application should include:
1) A resume;
2) Official or unofficial (photocopy and/or online version) undergraduate transcript;
3) A personal statement of no more than 500 words describing your interest in the MTO Fellows Program; and
