Meet us at your School

We work hard to build a Summer Associate program that provides a realistic look at life at Foley Hoag. Assignments will give you a view into the day-to-day work of our practice groups and the business of our clients. Individual feedback and guidance, in addition to substantive training programs, will allow you to build on the knowledge and skills you’ve gained in law school. Challenging work, valuable training, and lots of fun. We look forward to sharing more of the details at interviews this summer!!

Charles J. Beard Diversity Fellowship

Charles J. Beard, II Diversity Fellowship

As part of Foley Hoag's long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are proud to sponsor the Charles J. Beard, II Diversity Fellowship for outstanding first-year law students from backgrounds underrepresented in the legal profession. This fellowship is named in memory of our former partner, Charlie Beard, who was the first African-American lawyer promoted to partner at a major Boston law firm. It is, therefore, particularly fitting to honor Charlie, a staunch advocate for cultural and racial diversity, with this fellowship.
