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.

Register your organization with LCLD through the extended deadline of December 6, 2019. LCLD will host a hyperlinked page of available opportunities on our website and market the program to 1L law students beginning December 2, 2019. 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, beginning December 2, 2019. 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.

Register your Scholar by May 29, 2020, or as soon as possible. LCLD Member organizations will provide their Scholars’ information to LCLD and register their Scholars for enhanced virtual programming. Please note that due to COVID-19, the in-person 2020 LCLD Scholars Summit has been canceled (previously scheduled for June 2-4, 2020 at The Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta, GA). More details about the enhanced virtual content will be posted in the coming weeks.
