HNBA - Prudential Fellowship Program

The Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) is pleased to announce a partnership with Prudential Financial, Inc. (Prudential) to provide a meaningful fellowship opportunity to a highly-motivated recent law school graduate. Through this partnership, HNBA will select a recent law school graduate to join the Prudential Law Department as the HNBA-Prudential Law Fellow. Eligible candidates are 2009 or 2010 law school graduates. Deferred associates or other individuals with pending offers from a law firm or other employer are not eligible. The top three finalists selected for an interview at the Prudential headquarters in Newark, NJ will be eligible for travel expense reimbursement.


The Fellow will work full-time for 18 months in Prudential's Newark, NJ, offices beginning on December 1, 2010. During this time, the fellow may work in up to three Law Department divisions, which may include the Insurance, Investments, Litigation/Regulatory, Corporate Governance, Mergers & Acquisitions, Employment & Labor, Employee Benefits and International divisions. The Fellow will be paid an annual salary of US$60,000 with benefits. Employment and compensation is determined and provided solely by Prudential. The Fellow will be expected to seek employment outside of the Prudential Law Department after the end of the fellowship.


The Fellow's responsibilities shall include, but not be limited to, the following: executing legal transactions; securing, preparing, drafting, and processing legal documents; undertaking legal research; litigation support; and other special projects.
