For the past 8 years, the Memphis Bar Association has sponsored the Summer Law Intern Program, which seeks to develop and nurture an interest in the legal profession among young people from underrepresented groups. Students accepted into the program will be placed in law firms, corporate legal departments, or government agencies and are required to work a total of 60 hours during the four-week period from June 1–26, 2015. Upon successful completion of the internship, they will receive $500 stipend during a graduation ceremony to be held in early July.
Interns must be minority high school students in good standing who will begin their junior or senior year of high school in August of 2015 and must be legal residents of and attend school in Shelby County. Applicants previously accepted into the program are not eligible.
Attached is the application for the 2015 program; applications may also be downloaded from the MBA’s website, www.memphisbar.org. The deadline to submit applications is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 27th.
I would ask that you “spread the word” about this program to qualified students who may be interested. If you have any questions, please contact me at (901) 271-0660 firstname.lastname@example.org.
