|1L Minority Clerkship Program|
The HCBA Minnesota Minority Clerkship Program was recently adopted by the Hennepin County Bar Association (HCBA). The program, which first launched in the fall of 2005 under the direction of the Minnesota State Bar Association (MSBA), places first-year racial minority law students with Minnesota legal employers for a summer associate experience. The goal of the program is to bring together qualified racial minority law students and larger legal employers in Minnesota. Ultimately, the program hopes to find its participants becoming future partners and leaders in Minnesota’s larger legal employer community.
For the first summer experience in the summer of 2006, 24 first-year law students worked with 24 legal employers. Since then, the program has experienced great success. The 2013 summer was the program’s eighth year. Hundreds of law students from underrepresented backgrounds have been served by the program since its inception.
