Deadline: January 23, 2015 by 12 p.m. [2016 information currently not available]


The Mecklenburg County Bar's Diversity & Inclusion Committee is excited to announce the 2015 Charlotte Legal Diversity Clerkship (CLDC) program; a highly competitive summer program for first-year law students who advance the value of diversity.

We are delighted to announce that the 2015 program will now have the capacity to invite eight students to participate and join the Charlotte legal community for twelve weeks during the 2015 summer, working six weeks for a law firm and six weeks with a corporate legal department. CLDC students will also participate in a variety of professional and social activities that highlight the cultural, social and professional benefits of living and working in Charlotte.

Participating students will gain exposure to a variety of practice areas, expand their professional network, and participate in an assortment of legal proceedings that may include, but are not limited to hearings, closings, depositions and trials.

Award: Each law firm and corporate legal department will set the compensation for its clerk.
