1L Diversity Program
Every year, a number of local firms sponsor 1L Minority/Diversity summer programs as part of their diversity efforts. Each program includes a paid position for the summer, and some also include a scholarship. These firms are looking for students who will diversify their firms in particular and the profession in general. There is no definition for minority or diversity; rather, you need to think about whether you fit what they are looking for, then make your case. (Think of it like a Legal Writing exercise.)
Check out the quick reference guide of participating organizations with requirements and deadlines.
Evening students are eligible and have been selected in the past, but you must be able to accept a full-time job for at least six to eight consecutive weeks.
