Diversity Clerkship Program, ABA Section of Business Law
Deadline:

Amount:
$3,000
Brief Summary:
In recent years, many areas of the legal profession have made pursuing diversity a priority objective. Business law presents many distinct diversity challenges, as law students are often unfamiliar with the field and perceive it as conservative and unaccepting. This realization is troubling, particularly for the American Bar Association Business Law Section because its mission is:

To encourage diversity in the Section by fostering a welcoming environment for all lawyers and promoting full and equal participation by all lawyers, including lawyers of color, women lawyers, gay and lesbian lawyers, and lawyers with disabilities ("Diverse Lawyers").
To help address this problem, the Business Law Section sponsors the Diversity Clerkship Program. This summer program provides business law clerkship placements for nine qualified diverse first or second year law students. Participating clerks will receive support and mentoring in the business law field and exposure to business practices that many of them lack.

The WLALA Foundation is a non-profit charitable corporation established by the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles (“WLALA”) to increase the utility of the law as an instrument of social justice. The WLALA Foundation awards the Fran Kandel Public Interest Grant (formerly known as the WLALA Foundation Public Action Grant) to law students for projects that make governmental and social institutions and agencies more accessible and responsive to members of society whose interests are not otherwise adequately recognized or asserted. Since its incorporation in 1985, the WLALA Foundation has funded projects with a strong emphasis on public service. The WLALA Foundation’s Fran Kandel Public Interest Grant program enables law students to devote time to public interest projects and exposes them to legal and social concerns of disadvantaged citizens that are not ordinarily experienced in traditional law practices. The Grant program is designed not to support a summer public interest job, as worthy as one is, but rather to fund a particular project with a tangible outcome.

needs of underserved individuals and groups. We encourage applicants to identify grassroots and
non-traditional work opportunities for which there is a serious current societal need. This could
be a small non-profit, a short-staffed community law firm, or an organizing campaign that needs
legal assistance. The Haywood Burns Fellowships usually provide a rigorous legal experience as
