law links kicks off 20th anniversary internship
How time flies!
Started back in 1994, and modeled after a similar program in St. Louis, Law Links has created opportunities for youth unlike virtually any other internship program. Twenty years later, 765 young people have been hired as summer interns with area law firms and law-related agencies.
The program boasts a 98+% success rate among our interns, due in large part to three factors: returning employers who are familiar with the program, professional attire provided to interns, and the Law & Leadership Orientation and weekly Institute.
With six weeks of work still ahead of them, 17 interns from 11 city high schools, have a lot to look forward to: visits to court, deposition observations, and plenty of copying...! There will be many lessons learned, many friends and contacts made, and many eyes opened to what the "real" legal profession looks like. Stay tuned~ we'll be sure to share their stories along the way!
It's not too late to support this summer's internship! Click here for more information!
So many opportunities, so little time! CLREP offers a number of Law Related Education programs suited to students who are contemplating the legal profession, looking to learn a little about the legal system, needing to earn service learning hours, or interested in enhancing their resume with a more formal experience.
