    To apply, visit https://www.mto.com/careers/jay-fujitani-1l-diversity-summer-program

    Munger, Tolles & Olson offers a 1L summer associate program for diverse law students.

    The program is named in memory of the firm’s partner Jay M. Fujitani, who was a strong advocate for diversity in the legal profession.

    Program Description

    1L Fujitani Scholars are full participants in the MTO summer associate program. 1L Scholars are given meaningful work to provide them with a realistic sense of law practice at our firm. They work closely with attorneys in our various practice areas, and are encouraged to participate in firm life through our weekly attorney lunches, training programs, social events, and practice group meetings. Recognizing that first-year law students have one year less academic experience, 1L Scholars receive enhanced mentoring to ensure they have a productive summer, including a fully paid opportunity to attend the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s 1L Summit Program.

    1L Scholars are required to spend a minimum of eight weeks and may stay a maximum of ten weeks in our office. 1L Scholars are paid the same weekly salary as our 2L and 3L summer program participants ($3,654 per week).

    Split Summer Opportunity

    1L Scholars also have the option to work for up to four weeks: (1) at a law-related non-profit organization of their choice, or (2) in the legal department of one of a select roster of current MTO clients. Those choosing this option must work at MTO for the first eight weeks of the summer. 1L Scholars will continue to receive their weekly salary from the firm while working at their non-profit or in-house placement, for a maximum of twelve total weeks of pay for those choosing the split summer option.

    Positions Available

    In 2021, Munger Tolles is pleased to offer 1L Scholar positions in our Los Angeles and San Francisco offices.

    Following firm policy and the guidance of public health officials, Munger Tolles will determine whether the program will be held virtually or in person closer to the summer program start date.

    Program Requisites

    All applicants must be first-year law students in good standing pursuing a JD at an ABA-accredited law school. Successful candidates will have a record of academic achievement, employment, and community service indicating great potential to excel in the legal profession and to contribute to the diversity of Munger Tolles and the legal community. In the past, candidates have included members of racial or ethnic minority groups, first-generation college or law school students, veterans, people with disabilities, LGBTQ students, and students from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds.

    Application Process

    To apply, please complete our online application and provide a cover letter, resume, law school and undergraduate transcripts, personal statement, and contact information for two references. If you are unable to use the online application, please send your materials by email to diversity@mto.com.

    We encourage you to submit your materials as soon as possible after the application period begins on December 1, 2020. Although we will accept applications until February 14, 2021, we consider applications on a rolling basis and our limited number of positions may be full before that time.
