In the 4th year of existence, the ACC Southern California Diversity  Internship Program has placed a select group of first year law students from SoCal law schools in internships with corporate legal departments. The ACC Southern California Chapter is looking for first-year law students who have demonstrated a commitment to diversity and inclusion for an immersive summer internship experience with a Southern California corporate legal department.

As part of the Program, each intern will be assigned to work in the legal department of a SoCal  company, where they will perform a variety of tasks, including legal research, memo writing, contract drafting, attending internal and external meetings, and generally experiencing what in-house attorneys do on a day-to-day basis.  

The Program consists of four primary components: (1) the corporate in-house internship, (2) robust mentorship, and (3) network building.  In addition, students are provided a stipend to work for a minimum of eight to ten weeks during the summer.

The Program offers its interns the opportunity to meet and network with their future peers, including current in-house counsel, ACC Southern California Chapter members, and attorneys from various law firms throughout the  area.  Social outings and other  programs provide ample time and a unique opportunity for interns, hosts, and mentors to get to know each other.  



Requirements (no exceptions):
1.    Currently enrolled in a Southern California law school
2.    Only open to first year law students (1Ls) (expected graduation date of May 2026)

Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. on January 12, 2024.
