In an effort to recruit and nurture legal talent at an early stage, we have established a paid summer intern program for a first-year law student with a diverse background. Our first-year summer intern program coincides with our
second-year summer associate program and lasts for ten weeks. During the ten weeks, the student will perform substantive legal work, learn more about the law and our practice areas, receive constructive performance feedback, and will be mentored by members of our professional staff. We believe that this early training and guidance is invaluable to both incoming legal professionals and our firm. We have had great success with the recruitment and hiring of candidates with diverse backgrounds for our first-year summer intern and second-year summer associate programs, and most receive offers to join the firm.
Please note that our definition of a diverse background is broad, so any students who feel that they qualify for this position are encouraged to apply. In past years, we have focused our recruitment efforts on first-year law students interested in our Food and Drug and/or Environmental practice groups, and we plan to do the same this year. Please note that we plan to hire one first-year summer intern for the upcoming summer. For additional information relating to our firm, please visit our website www.khlaw.com. Interested students should email their cover letter, resume, transcripts (undergrad and law school), and a writing sample to Jennifer Ireland, Recruitment Manager, Keller and Heckman LLP at email@example.com.

Consistent with our rich tradition and commitment to diversity and inclusion, Bricker & Eckler LLP is pleased to once again present the Charles H. Walker Minority Scholarship for 2013. Established to provide first-year minority law students with a valuable employment experience early in their legal career, this scholarship will be awarded to a minority candidate (as defined in the Equal Employment Opportunity Commissions Regulations, 29 C.F.R. Part 1602, i.e. Native American or Alaska native, Asian or Pacific Islander, African-American or Black and Hispanic) who demonstrates leadership skills, academic strength, service to the community and an overall commitment to excellence.
Diversity and inclusion are not only driving forces for our firm’s future, but are an important part of our history. Bricker & Eckler was the first Columbus, Ohio majority law firm to hire an African-American attorney, as well as the first to elect an African American, Charles Walker, to the partnership. We proudly dedicate this scholarship in honor of our partner and trusted friend, Charles H. Walker, whose career and service to our community exemplify a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion.
Minority students in their first year of legal studies currently enrolled in an ABA-approved law school are eligible to apply for the scholarship. One scholarship in the form of a $10,000 cash award (less any applicable taxes and withholdings) towards law school tuition and other law school related expenses will be awarded. In addition, the scholarship recipient will receive a paid summer associate position for the summer of 2013.
Eligible candidates should complete the application, which can be downloaded from the Firm’s website at www.bricker.com, and forward it with their résumé, writing sample, LSAT score, official undergraduate and graduate transcripts and law school grades (when available) to the attention of Patricia M. Lach, Recruiting/Professional Development Coordinator, Bricker & Eckler LLP, 100 South Third Street, Columbus, OH 43215. All applications must be complete when submitted and must be received by February 15, 2013. Scholarship finalists will be interviewed by members of the Firm’s Recruiting Committee and we hope to make the final selection by the Spring.
All inquiries related to the Bricker & Eckler LLP – Charles H. Walker Minority Scholarship should be directed to Patricia M. Lach, Recruiting/Professional Development Coordinator, email@example.com.
The PDLG First-Year Summer Program (the “Summer 1L Program”) offers first-year students an additional route to summer employment in outstanding law firms and corporate law departments. Application through this program will not preclude a student from otherwise seeking or accepting a job at any participating firm or organization or preclude the firm or organization hiring the student outside of the Summer 1L Program.
The goal of the Summer 1L Program is to increase the number of lawyers of diverse backgrounds working at Philadelphia area law firms and corporate law departments. Thus, the Summer 1L Program is designed to identify first year law students who have overcome significant obstacles in pursuing a legal career, come from disadvantaged backgrounds or from backgrounds that are underrepresented in the Philadelphia legal community and who have demonstrated the ability – based on academic achievement, writing ability and other accomplishments – to succeed in the summer programs run by our member organizations. The PDLG hopes this program will enable a group of those students to get summer clerkships in Philadelphia, whether as part of formal summer programs or not, and thus allow them to experience the law firm or corporate law environment in Philadelphia and, perhaps, help them “kick-start” their legal careers.
The deadline to submit applications for the Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington 1L Diversity Fellowship positions is this Wednesday, January 16 at midnight.
