Deadline:  Extended to Friday, April 15, 2011

The High School Summer Law Intern Program (SLIP) seeks to develop and nurture an interest in the legal profession among young people from underrepresented groups, with the long-term goal of increasing diversity in the legal profession.  Interns will get personal experience in the daily legal workplace of private law firms, corporate law divisions or governmental law offices.  Each participating workplace will provide a mentor to the intern, who will assign them duties and assist them in gaining a better understanding of the practice of law.

Interns must be minority high school students in good standing who will begin their junior or senior year of high school in August 2011 and must be residents of Shelby County. Applicants previously accepted into the program are not eligible.

Internships are for a period of 4 weeks, June 13-July 8. Interns must be able to work a minimum of 60 hours during that time period. Upon successful completion of the internship, each intern will receive a $500 stipend. Interns who do not successfully complete the program will lose part of or the entire stipend. The particular days and times an intern works each week will be determined by the workplace and the intern.
