Each year, the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association (“CMBA”) sponsors the Minority Clerkship Program. As the CMBA describes on its website: “[t]his program provides the opportunity for qualified minority law students to work as law clerks or summer associates in a firm, legal department or government agency at the end of their first year of law school. This experience better prepares the students to compete for permanent legal positions in the future, while providing employers with the opportunity to work with well-qualified minority students. Since its inception, the MCP has involved over 40 of Cleveland’s law firms, legal departments and government agencies and has assisted over 300 law students in obtaining valuable clerkship positions.”
Join representatives from the CMBA on Tuesday, October 23 at 5PM in room 204 to learn more about this exciting program. The discussion on Tuesday will highlight timelines, deadlines, and application processes, as well as tips on the application and interview process.
