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 are working with Chicagoland companies.
Interns work for a minimum of ten (10) weeks and are assigned a mentor in the company who is responsible for directing their day-to-day workload and ensuring that the students have a positive learning experience. In addition, the interns are also assigned a mentor from the ACC Chicago Chapter and will attend seminars and networking events hosted by the Chicago Chapter and participating legal departments. These seminars offer the students helpful tips on topics such as networking, interviewing and resume writing.
The Chicago Chapter has chosen fifteen students from diverse backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession for the summer of 2017. Additionally, the Chapter chose diverse students who are eager to learn and are capable of thriving in a corporate environment.
