Every LCLD Member organization is invited to select one or more 1L LCLD Scholars to participate in a summer internship at their organization and attend a summit designed exclusively for 1L LCLD Scholars.

Eligibility and Application Process

Step 1: Register with LCLD.

LCLD Member organizations should register online October 10, 2016 to November 18, 2016. LCLD will then host a hyperlinked page of available opportunities on our website and market the program to 1L law students beginning December 1, 2016. Members may choose whether or not they would like to utilize the LCLD website in their recruiting efforts.

Step 2: Hire your Scholar.

1L LCLD Scholar candidates must apply directly to summer internships at the LCLD Member organization(s) of their choice. Each Member will independently identify, select, and hire its respective 1L Scholars. 1L Scholar candidates must be enrolled as first-year law students and in good standing at an ABA-approved law school.

Step 3: Register your Scholar.

April 3 - May 5, 2017, LCLD Member organizations will provide their Scholars’ information to LCLD and register their Scholars for the 2017 1L LCLD Scholars Summit, which will take place May 23-25, 2017 at the Sheraton Philadelphia Society Hill Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. The summit agenda and more details will be available in late winter. Member organizations will be responsible for all of their Scholars’ travel expenses (round-trip airfare, accommodations, and incidental expenses).
