Corporate Partners

How long is the obligation? Much like a judicial clerkship, a corporate fellowship lasts for one year.

How are fellows selected? After a fellowship position is posted within the Moritz College of Law on the College’s Symplicity system, according to criteria established by the corporation in consultation with Moritz’s Office of Career Development, corporate partners 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. Corporate fellows are paid by the corporations that hire them at a level commensurate with service as a fellow.

What are some of the corporations participating in the program? Recent Moritz Corporate Fellowship Program partners include:  American Electric Power, DSW, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, Honda North America, L Brands, Key Bank, Nationwide Insurance, OhioHealth, Schottenstein Property Group, Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, The Sherwin-Williams Company, and The Wendy’s Company.

Who do I contact if I would like more  information? Please contact Cheri Wiles, J.D. Career Advisor, at wiles.65@osu.edu or (614) 247-1600.

Moritz Fellows

Who can apply for the fellowship? Fellowship positions are for graduating law students.

How/When do I apply? Fellowship positions are posted on the College’s Symplicity system beginning in the first semester of a student’s third year and continue as received through January following graduation.

How many fellowships are available each year? The number of fellowship positions will vary from year to year. Each year new corporate partners are introduced to the program and current partners evaluate their staffing needs. Since 2011, we have had 10 to 15 fellowship positions annually.

Are the positions paid? Yes. Corporate partners pay the salary of Moritz fellows.

If hired, how long am I committed to serve  as a fellow? If you accept a Moritz Corporate Fellowship, you are expected to fulfill your obligation to the corporation. The specific times will be discussed between you and the corporate partner, but each fellowship is expected to last twelve months.
