Dear First-year Students:
I will be at Albany Law School on Wednesday, October 28 at 4:30pm to hold an informational session regarding our Diversity Clerkship Program (in your Career Center) to learn more about the program and the unique opportunity it provides for you as a first-year student.  On behalf of the Monroe County Bar Association, the Greater Rochester Association for Women Attorneys and the Rochester Black Bar Association, I write to invite you to apply to the Summer 2016 Rochester Legal Diversity Clerkship Program.   

Over the last 10 years, the Rochester Legal Diversity Clerkship Program has attracted many talented first-year law students from schools across the country to work in highly competitive, paid summer positions at law firms, as in-house counsel, and in the public sector.  Each year, our students use their summer experience to demonstrate their aptitude and enthusiasm for the law, while learning firsthand why Rochester is such an attractive market in which to practice.  Many of our students have also used the summer experience to forge relationships with law firms and other legal entities in our community, and have gone on to earn full-time positions from those organizations after completing law school.

As the recipient of the 2012 New York State Bar Association Bar Leaders Innovation Award, and the 2013 ABA Partnership Award, the Rochester Legal Diversity Clerkship Program is a successful, nationally-recognized program that has promoted the cause of diversity in the legal community of our great city.  We would be very pleased to count Albany Law School students within our Summer 2016 Class.

Please visit the below site to learn more about this paid summer job.  The application will be posted at https://mcba.org/about-us/diversity.aspx and there is already an overview posted there.  Please feel free to contact me in advance.  I hope to meet you on your campus on Wednesday!

Thanks,  Louise Spinelli
