Colleen M. Swiers, Litigation Fellow at Anapol Weiss and the first recipient of the Anapol Weiss Fellowship Program with Villanova University Law School, has been admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar on a provisional basis. Colleen is now admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania under a limited license as she waits to take the Pennsylvania Bar examination, which has been delayed due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
Colleen first joined the firm in July 2020 as the winner of Anapol Weiss’s inaugural Fellowship Program.
“It’s an honor to have been selected as the first recipient of the Villanova Fellowship Program and to work alongside such talented and experienced litigators at Anapol Weiss,” Colleen shared.
As Litigation Fellow at Anapol Weiss, Colleen has been the beneficiary of real-life experience and mentorship by experienced legal counsel at the firm across a variety of practice areas.
“The mentorship provided by this fellowship is incredibly beneficial as I begin my career as a lawyer,” she added. “Having this opportunity to learn as a young attorney is invaluable.”
Colleen shares that she is excited to continue to grow with the firm.
“In looking ahead, I’m excited to learn more about litigation and the representation of clients. Law school only teaches you so much, and this opportunity allows me to take what I learned in the classroom and apply it in a practical and fully immersive way, especially now that I am licensed to practice law.”
