Challenging work, valuable training, and lots of fun. We look forward to sharing more of the details at interviews this summer!!

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.
