Subject: Business Law Section Diversity Clerkship Program


On Behalf of the Business Law Section 

Dear D&I Advisory Council Representatives:  

Please spread the word among your networks that the Business Law Section's
2022 Diversity Clerkship Program is now accepting applications. The
Diversity Clerkship Program is a summer program that provides business law
clerkship placements for qualified diverse second year law students.
Participating clerks receive support and mentoring in the business law field
and exposure to business practices. 

The purpose of the program is to provide hands-on experience and exposure in
business law to law students. Roles and responsibilities of selected
Diversity Clerkship participants include but are not limited to the
following: researching cases, drafting memoranda and opinions, observing
trials, and networking with local attorneys and judges. In addition to a
placement in a business court clerkship, Diversity Clerkship participants
will also receive a stipend of $3,000 to cover living expenses for the
duration of the 8-week clerkship. If COVID-19 prevents a student from
traveling for their clerkship, the Section can offer a remote experience.
