Goodwin Procter LLP recently announced the three recipients of the Goodwin Diversity Fellowship.
All of the recipients are minority second-year law students. The Fellowship provides $15,000 to each recipient in recognition of his/her exceptional academic performance, outstanding leadership, a commitment to community service, interest in the private practice of law, and other special achievements and honors.
The recipients are: Charles J. Borrero, Georgetown University Law Center; Nilda M. Isidro, New York University School of Law, and Marie C. Scott, Harvard Law School.
Eligible applicants applied this summer and fall and had to be full-time, currently enrolled students of color pursuing a J.D. at an accredited law school, with no more than two full years of school remaining until anticipated graduation. Students applied before their second year of law school during the interview process for the Goodwin Procter Summer Associate program.
Goodwin Procter also announced the addition of Christopher J. Denn to its Life Sciences Practice as a partner in the Boston office. Mr. Denn's practice is focused on advising companies in the commercialization of intellectual property, including licensing, strategic collaborations and joint ventures. Mr. Denn's cliets include both emerging and established drug and medical device manufacturers.
