Hire a Law Academy Intern; Change a Life

Firms can also sponsor an intern to work at a legal nonprofit

The Justice & Diversity Center’s Law Academy program encourages and increases career opportunities for underserved and ethnically diverse students in Balboa High School in San Francisco.

Creative and inspiring curriculum is built into several core classes where junior and senior students learn basic legal concepts and interview and job skills which prepare them to join the workforce directly out of college. The legal community contributes greatly by mentoring and hiring Law Academy students as summer interns. These students realize personal strengths that they may not otherwise discover.

Check out these benefits of hiring a Law Academy Summer Intern:

  • Productive contribution by students in the workplace
  • Heightened workplace pride and morale, a chance for employees to develop and practice leadership and mentoring skills
  • Direct contribution to building vibrant schools and communities in San Francisco
  • Opportunity to promote to your clientele that your firm supports Justice & Diversity Center Diversity Pipeline programs

Don’t need an intern in your office? Consider sponsoring an intern to work in a legal nonprofit’s office.
