Open the Doors to Opportunity for Diverse Law Students

Aimed at opening doors of opportunity for diverse law students, the 1L Open Doors Job Shadow Program strives to help 1L law students enrolled in San Francisco law schools jumpstart their professional development through early, day-to-day immersion in dynamic legal organizations.

The Bar Association of San Francisco, University of San Francisco School of Law, UC Hastings College of the Law, and Golden Gate University School of Law believe that early exposure to practitioners and professional environments is essential to launching students’ career advancement. The Open Doors program seeks to facilitate that key step.

The 1L Open Doors Job Shadow Program will be held March 5-7, 2018 and we are currently seeking to place 30 law students with firms and in-house legal departments.
