Since launching the Business Fellowship Program last year, two additional companies have formed a partnership with Maryland Carey Law to offer more opportunities for students to gain practical experience in the business world.
Evergreen Health Cooperative joins the Brown Advisory, Greenberg Gibbons Commercial, The Cordish Companies, and the University of Maryland Medical System in offering year-long postgraduate fellowships.
Vasoptic Medical Inc. is participating in the 10-week summer fellowship, along with inaugural partners FutureCare, LifeBridge Health, and T. Rowe Price. Summer business fellowships are supported by the employers and generous alumni donors who share the cost of a fellow’s stipend.
“We are thrilled to have these two new partners join us in our mission of training the next generation of law and business leaders,” said Dean Donald Tobin, who has made this program a priority for Maryland Carey Law.
“The continued interest in the fellowships reflects the business demand for legal professionals. We are grateful for all of the program participants for their support,” added Tobin.
Modeled after the judicial clerkship and internship experience, the Business Fellowship program was designed to help Maryland companies and institutions meet their business and legal needs while providing growth opportunities for current Maryland Carey Law students and recent alumni.
“My summer fellowship experience at FutureCare was incredible,” said third-year student Joe Sweeny. “I acted as the understudy to the company’s Chief Corporate Counsel, where I was able to learn about the law from a business’s perspective.”
“I was exposed to an entirely new area of law each and every day, meeting new attorneys in various fields, and gaining an understanding of the legal landscape from a practical, hands-on perspective,” Sweeny added.
