Law Students


At Baker Botts, we are committed to the recruitment, retention and development of exceptional attorneys and law students. We recognize the value of diverse perspectives and the integral role they play in the continued growth and success of our firm. The Baker Botts/AT&T Summer Fellows Program is one of our many diversity programs aimed at promoting diversity here at our firm and in the legal profession.

The Baker Botts/AT&T Summer Fellows Program offers a unique opportunity for diverse first-year law students to experience a 360-degree view of working with both in-house and outside counsel in our Dallas office. Under the program, the Summer Fellow will work with and be mentored by experienced AT&T lawyers, providing an opportunity to practice in-house and learn how they advise and advocate for a multinational public company. They will spend two-to-three weeks working directly with members of the AT&T Legal Department at AT&T’s offices.
