2019 1L Diversity Summer Program
As a part of our firms’ shared commitment to diversity and inclusion, Bernstein Shur and Verrill Dana are jointly seeking diverse 1L students to apply for an eight-week 1L Diversity Summer Program in one of our offices in Portland, Maine. We see individual differences in race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, family structure and/or economic status as critically important components to providing outstanding client service and a better work environment for our attorneys and staff.
Our goal is to provide a meaningful private law firm work experience to diverse students who have completed one year of law school. Candidates must have an excellent academic record, exceptional writing ability, strong analytical and interpersonal skills, and demonstrated self-confidence. This is a paid position. The program will run from June 3, 2019 through July 26, 2019.
Interested students should submit a cover letter, resume and a current law school transcript to Sarah Lacombe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will receive applications on a rolling basis until March 29, 2019.
We are equal employment opportunity employers and all qualified applicants will receive consideration.
