Justin Carlson

2010 LAW FELLOW


Justin Carlson had the unique opportunity as an L1 to do a summer fellowship at Chevron. During his fellowship at Chevron, Justin worked on drafting contracts in Spanish. “I found this work to be really interesting; it was invaluable to draft legal documents in Spanish because it’s not something I have the opportunity to do in my day to day life–everything I do is in English.” Mayda Prego, Senior Counsel at Chevron said, “The HNBF Law Fellowship creates incredible professional opportunities for Latino law students with the future impact of more diverse corporate legal departments.”

Justin’s legal education had focused solely on domestic law but through his HNBF Law Fellows experience he was exposed to international laws and relations. “This was a rare opportunity that most L1 students don’t get.” Furthermore, Justin conducted research on international laws and United Nations? laws and policies pertaining to Middle Eastern countries. “After my experience working with Chevron, I believe I could have an enriching experience in an international corporation. Going in-house is high on my list of considerations.”

Justin describes what was most valuable for him as a Law Fellow, “Being an HNBF Law Fellow sets you apart from most first year law students. Having that on my resume, the contacts as references, and engaging in the work I did, all combined has made me a more marketable candidate in a competitive job market.”
