The 2014 Palm Beach County Bar Association Diversity Internship Program Application is Now Available

The Palm Beach County Bar Association’s Diversity Internship Program was formed in 2010 to provide students of diverse backgrounds an opportunity to gain valuable work experience in legal work environments. Law firms of many different practice areas and those classified as large, medium and small have participated in the program.  The program has also included opportunities for governmental and public interest employment and resulted in some of the law clerks being offered opportunities for future, permanent employment.  However, future, permanent positions are not promised.

Students that are interested should contact their CDO advisor for applications and other details on participating in the program. Additional details, as well as the application form, are all also available on the website.

The following should be attached to your application: 1) current resume; 2) legal writing sample, 15 pages or less; 3) transcript; and 4) a brief statement, 400 words or less, explaining what makes you a diverse intern. Send the completed application and all attachments to Chioma Deere.

Application deadline: January 17, 2014 @ 5:00 p.m.
