Leadership Council on Legal Diversity - 1L LCLD Scholars Program

Application Period: Applications open December 1, 2017

Deadline: Deadlines vary by organizations. Candidates must apply directly to the organizations.

Eligibility:

Our 1L Scholars Program gives these law students the rare opportunity to work side-by-side with attorneys from LCLD Member organizations. It provides them with valuable professional experiences while introducing them to the value of relationships and building networks with LCLD Members.

1. Apply directly to summer internships made available by LCLD Member organizations. We encourage you to apply to as many as possible.
2. If you have questions about any of the job opportunities, please use the contact information listed for that organization.
3. Note that to be eligible as a 1L Scholar, you must be enrolled as a first-year law student and in good standing in an ABA-approved school.
4. Member organizations will make the final hiring decision at their discretion. They will also make the decision to nominate you as a 1L LCLD Scholar.  Note: Member organizations will also register their Scholar(s) for the 1L Scholars Summit.
5. You will attend the Scholars Summit at the beginning of the summer, where you will be exposed to three days of distinguished speakers, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. Please contact Nancy Richardson, LCLD Program Manager, if you have questions about the Summit. 
6. If hired, plan to spend your summer with that LCLD Member organization working side-by-side with attorneys, learning new skills, and building networks.
