KMK Law believes that a diverse work environment attracts the best and the brightest people in the legal community and provides the most creative, innovative solutions for our clients. As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity, we are proud to sponsor the KMK Law Diversity Fellowship Program. This Program is intended to further our mission of recruiting and retaining a skilled, high-performing diverse workforce.
Selected applicants would be hired as a first-year summer associate. In addition to the salary customarily paid to our summer associates, recipients of the Diversity Fellowship will receive a grant in an amount up to $10,000. The first half of the grant will be paid within 30 days of beginning the summer associate program and unless otherwise agreed, the remaining half of the grant is contingent upon receiving and accepting a position for the next step in the Diversity Fellow's legal career, as a second year summer associate, at KMK Law.

- The Diversity Fellowship is open to all underrepresented students, including but not limited to racial/ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ and other students that would contribute to the cause of diversity at KMK, regardless of race or ethnicity, including without limitation women in law, military veterans and persons with a disability/handicap.
