I have been lucky to participate in the Legal Fellowship that UC Law pioneered with Fifth Third Bank. In-house counsel positions are basically unheard of for recent law school graduates, but UC Law and Fifth Third have created a program that encourages mentor ship between fellows and corporate leaders while strengthening our legal skills and teaching us how to be better lawyers. This experience will make us more competitive after the fellowship ends and give us an advantage in the job market not just in Ohio, but anywhere our careers may take us.
