Corporate Partners

How long is the obligation?
Much like a judicial clerkship, a Moritz Corporate Fellowship typically lasts for approximately one year.

How are fellows selected?
After a fellowship position is posted within the Moritz College of Law, according to criteria established by the corporation in consultation with Moritz’s Office of Career Services, corporate partners will select candidates to interview and proceed with a typical hiring process. Corporate partners have sole discretion as to whom they hire.

Is the corporate partner required to pay the fellows?
Yes. Moritz corporate fellows are paid by the corporations that hire them at a level commensurate with service as a fellow.

Recent Moritz Corporate Fellowship Program partners include: Abercrombie & Fitch, American Electric Power, Angie's List, BroadStreet Capital Partners, Inc., Cardinal Health, DSW, Fifth Third Bank, Goodyear, Kroger, National Retail Federation, Nationwide, Proctor & Gamble, Progressive Insurance, The Ohio State University Office of Legal Affairs, The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, and United Retirement Plan Consultants.
