DANY Diversity - 2018 Brooklyn Legal Pipeline Initiative
DANY's Diversity Committee wishes to call attention to the 2018 Brooklyn Legal Pipeline Initiative. This is an annual program for college students that DANY co-sponsors with the Brooklyn Bar Association and the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association. It runs from January through September. To learn more, please review the 2017 brochure with application and Brooklyn Eagle write-up that are available via the links below, and kindly publicize this opportunity with as many people in your networks as possible. Also, please let us know if you or any members of your firm would be interested in becoming involved either as a mentor or mock interviewer. We are also seeking firms who would be willing to provide our participants with an 8 week summer internship opportunity. Because our target participants are economically disadvantaged we are encouraging firms that are interested in providing internship opportunities to commit to providing the participants with a $1,000 stipend to cover their transportation and incidental costs. We have high hopes for this program and are grateful to DANY and its leadership for its ongoing commitment to developing a more inclusive legal community. Please contact Claire Rush at firstname.lastname@example.org. Link for Pipeline Program brochure with application:
