The Summer Law Intern program would not be possible without the help of donations.
You can sponsor one student to participate in the program for $500, but no amount is too small.
All donations are tax deductable.
Summer Law Intern Program
For over 10 years, the Memphis Bar Association has sponsored the Summer Law Intern Program, which seeks to develop and nurture an interest in the legal profession among young people from underrepresented groups. Students accepted into the program are placed in law firms, corporate legal departments, or government agencies and are required to work a total of 60 hours during the four-week period in the summer. Upon successful completion of the internship, they will receive $500 stipend during a graduation ceremony to be held in early July.
You can read about Quinton Thompson's experience with SLIP and how it led him to become an attorney here.
Interns must be minority high school students in good standing who will begin their junior or senior year of high school in August of 2018 and must be legal residents of and attend school in Shelby County. Applicants previously accepted into the program are not eligible.
If you are interested in participating in the 2018 Summer Law Intern Program, please submit your information here.
If you are a law firm or organization that would like to host an intern, please e-mail Anne Fritz at afritz [at] memphisbar [dot] org or call 901.527.3573 ext 110.
This program is made possible through donations and sponsorships. Please help SLIP continue to growing by making a donation today.
