The 2019 Diversity Leadership Academy, taking place from March 29-31, 2019 in San Francisco, brings together Latham lawyers and summer associates from around the globe and talented first-year law students from across the United States. The program seeks to develop and empower future leaders of the legal profession and create community among lawyers, recruits, and 1L guests, all of whom share a commitment to diversity and inclusion. This firm-sponsored professional development and training program provides first-year law students with the information and skills needed to successfully navigate the law firm interview and hiring process and transition from law student to practicing attorney. Students will participate in interactive seminars on a variety of topics, including resume writing, interview skills, diversity and inclusion, and pro bono.
