Thanks to the generous and continued support of Bruce B. & Ginny Conlan Whitman, the Whitman Fellowship provides a Cincinnati Law student with a $4,000 stipend to work for an employer that specializes in representing individual plaintiffs and their families in personal rights litigation, tort and employment law, such as those injured by the negligence of another or wrongfully terminated from employment. The Fellowship is now in its eighth year.
The Whitman Fellow spends their summer working on substantive legal assignments under attorney supervision, supporting the employer’s work. The goal of the Whitman Fellowship is to provide unprecedented experience and exposure to personal rights litigation (i.e. tort and employment law) and simultaneously provide support to a local practice.
The UC College of Law is grateful for the opportunity this Fellowship provides, both to the student and to a local employer, in advancing this important area of legal practice.
