C|M|LAW admits a small number of students who demonstrate outstanding achievement and leadership potential in the Dean’s Leadership Fellows Program. Those selected are known as Dean's Leadership Fellows. Some, but not all, of those admitted to the Program also receive a 3-year guaranteed full-tuition Dean’s Leadership Scholarship to Cleveland-Marshall College of Law.
Each year, we invite a select group of admitted students to apply for the Dean's Leadership Fellows Program. The invited students demonstrate academic excellence, leadership qualities and a commitment to our values of Learn Law. Live Justice.
Our Dean's Leadership Fellows Program equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to address important public policy and social challenges, and to lead in their communities and beyond. Fellows have the special opportunity to interact with prominent national, state and local leaders to explore issues in leadership and the law through regular small, interactive roundtable discussions at the law school and in the community. Dean’s Fellows also may apply to serve as a paid Research Assistant to Dean Lee Fisher, who teaches a course called “Leadership and the Law,” during their second and third years of law school.
