Thank you for your interest in applying for an OnRamp Fellowship position. Please see the important eligbility information below.

Lawyers who have at least three years of full-time, post-licensure legal experience at one or more mid-to-large organizations and have taken a hiatus from the profession for two or more years are eligible to apply.  Law firm applicants must be licensed to practice law in the jurisdiction where they plan to apply for a Fellowship.  Legal department applicants can be licensed to practice law in any US jurisdiction.

If you meet these requirements, please proceed to the first step in the application process listed below.

Create a free Submittable account to start the application form. Creating an account, which includes setting up a username and password, will allow you to save and return to your application form as needed throughout the process.  The form will likely take 30-45 minutes to complete.  You will be asked for information on your schooling, work history, background, professional references, future career aspirations, and to submit a current resume.

Please note that you will be asked to provide the email addresses for two professional references when completing the application so we suggest you contact your potential references prior to beginning your application. We suggest including references who directly supervised you or worked with you in either paid or volunteer legal roles. Upon submission of your application, references will be automatically contacted and asked to complete a 5-minute survey which will be returned confidentially to the OnRamp Fellowship Director.  

After you have submitted your application form, a Fellowship representative will contact you within two to three business days to confirm receipt of your completed application and inform you of next steps.


Overview of Next Steps & Important Notes:

(1)  This form is the first step in the OnRamp application process. Other steps include completing the online skills and writing assessments (US$175 fee for assessments paid by the applicant), as well as participating in one to two interview meetings.  

Please note: The skills and writing assessments are an essential component of the application process; they provide us (and you) with in-depth information about your skills, so we can better understand your strengths.  You will receive a comprehensive multi-page report with your results as well as developmental tips to assist in your career development efforts.

(2)  Completing the application process does not guarantee an offer or employment with any of the organizations participating in the Fellowship.

(3)  Law firm applicants must be admitted to the state bar in the jurisdiction in which they are seeking a Fellowship position. Legal department applicants can be licensed to practice law in any jurisdiction.
