In the years since the program’s inception, hundreds of law students have received paid internship opportunities at law firms in the Capital Region. The Albany County Bar Association (ACBA) Diversity Internship Program commenced in September of 2000 in an effort to broaden the opportunities for minority law students to be exposed to practice in a private law firm setting.
