Law Student Chung Wins Firm's Diversity & Inclusion Fellowship
Second-year law student Joy Chung is one of three recipients of Faegre Baker Daniels LLP’s 2014 Diversity & Inclusion Fellowships. In addition to a stipend, Chung also will serve as a 2014 summer associate, be matched with a mentor lawyer, and participate in a formal education and training program at the firm.
Chung, who will work in the Denver office, was a summer associate with Medtronic, Inc. and a Minneapolis law firm in 2013. At the law school, she is staff editor for the Journal of Law & Policy, coordinates speaker outreach for the Black Law Students Association, and serves as alumnae liaison for the Women’s Law Caucus.
Before law school, Chung was a literacy instructor at City of Lakes AmeriCorps, where she redesigned sixth-grade math and language-arts curricula to meet the needs of multilingual students. While earning a bachelor’s degree in international studies and political science at the University of Iowa, Chung successfully worked to increase overall student volunteerism at the university. She also served as an English instructor at a school in Strasbourg, France.
Faegre Baker Daniels’ Diversity & Inclusion Fellowships support the firm’s commitment to increasing diversity in the legal profession by providing hands-on legal experience to second-year law students who are committed to contributing meaningfully to diversity and inclusion in the profession.
