Covington to Offer Paid, One-Year Positions for Returning Women Lawyers

April 1, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC, April 1, 2015  — Covington is proud to participate in the OnRamp Fellowship, a program that provides women lawyers re-entering the legal profession with an opportunity to update their skills and legal contacts through one-year, paid positions with top law firms. The program aims to replenish the talent pipeline in law firms with diverse, high-performing lawyers who have the potential and the desire to advance into leadership roles.

“Providing mechanisms to facilitate the reentry of talented women into the practice of law is a growing imperative for the industry,” said Michael Imbroscio, chair of Covington’s diversity initiatives. “Covington’s participation in the OnRamp Fellowship program is an important part of Covington’s overall efforts to attract women who have left the law for family or other reasons and who are now looking for how best to return to a top-tier law firm practice."

Covington joins 18 major law firms that are signed on to participate. Together, these law firms have posted more than 120 Fellowship positions across the U.S., providing opportunities in more than 15 practice areas, including antitrust, corporate, emerging companies, FDA regulatory, finance, intellectual property, life sciences, labor and employment, litigation, real estate, securities, and tax.

Women lawyers who are selected to participate in the Fellowship are provided with a partner advisor at the firm, an external career counselor, unlimited online CLE through Practising Law Institute, and a variety of training from experts in negotiations, oral advocacy, technology, and project management.
