DIVERSITY SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
2017 Diversity Intern Kick-Off Social
The ACC Chicago - Diversity Summer Internship Program places law students with diverse backgrounds from Illinois law schools in internships with corporate legal departments. This summer fifteen selected law students worked with Chicagoland companies.
Interns worked for a minimum of ten (10) weeks and were assigned a mentor in the company who was responsible for directing their day-to-day workload and ensuring that the students had a positive learning experience. In addition, the interns were also assigned a mentor from the ACC Chicago Chapter and attended seminars and networking events hosted by the Chicago Chapter and participating legal departments. These seminars offered the students helpful tips on topics such as networking, interviewing and resume writing.
The Chicago Chapter chose students from diverse backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession for the summer of 2017. Additionally, the Chapter chose students who are eager to learn and are capable of thriving in a corporate environment.
