Job Description

Why Mayo Clinic
Mayo Clinic is top-ranked in more specialties than any other care provider according to U.S. News & World Report. As we work together to put the needs of the patient first, we are also dedicated to our employees, investing in competitive compensation and comprehensive benefit plans – to take care of you and your family, now and in the future. And with continuing education and advancement opportunities at every turn, you can build a long, successful career with Mayo Clinic. You’ll thrive in an environment that supports innovation, is committed to ending racism and supporting diversity, equity and inclusion, and provides the resources you need to succeed.


Foley & Lardner LLP and Mayo Clinic, two leaders in the health care industry, have partnered to create the Mayo-Foley Health Law Fellowship for current first-year law students interested in a career in health care law.

The fellowship combines two outstanding summer internships followed by an opportunity to become a new health care associate at Foley. Following the first year of law school, the Mayo-Foley Fellow will spend 10-12 weeks beginning in May/June of 2024 at Mayo Clinic. The Mayo Clinic portion of this position is 100% remote; can work from anywhere in the U.S. However, this position may be given the optional opportunity to travel to Rochester, MN. If the Mayo-Foley Fellow performs well during the first summer at Mayo Clinic, the Fellow will join Foley’s Summer Associate Program as a 2L summer associate, for 10 weeks beginning in May/June of 2025, in Foley’s Boston or Los Angeles office. Following successful completion of the 2025 Summer Associate Program, the Mayo-Foley Fellow will join Foley as a new associate in the fall after law school graduation.

Pursuant to the CA Pay Transparency for Pay Equity Act, the expected salary for Foley’s Los Angeles based 2025 Summer Associate Program position is $215,000 annually, pro-rated for time spent at the firm.


Eligible applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution and completed one year an ABA-accredited law school. Continued enrollment in a JD program, with an emphasis on health care, must be shown. Preference will be given to students with health care backgrounds (either career, education, or both). A minimum undergraduate and law school GPA of 3.0 is required.

To apply, submit a resume, first semester transcript, and a statement of interest (limited to one page) through both the Foley Careers website and Mayo Clinic’s website. Please note in the statement of interest your office location preference. To access the Foley Careers website, please visit select “View Law Student and Patent Engineer Openings”.
