The Brooklyn Pipeline Initiative
Our Diversity Committee wishes to call attention to the 2018 Brooklyn Legal Pipeline Initiative. This is a program for college students that the Brooklyn Women's Bar Association is co-sponsoring with the Brooklyn Bar Association and the Defense Association of New York.
Please review the brochure with application that is available via the link above, and kindly publicize this opportunity with as many people in your networks as possible. Also, please let us know if you or any members of your firm would be interested in becoming involved either as a mentor or mock interviewer. We are also seeking firms who would be willing to provide our participants with an 8 week summer internship opportunity. Because our target participants are economically disadvantaged we are encouraging firms that are interested in providing internship opportunities to commit to providing the participants with a $1,000 stipend to cover their transportation and incidental costs. We have high hopes for this program and are grateful to the BWBA and its leadership for its ongoing commitment to developing a more inclusive legal community. Please contact Claire Rush at firstname.lastname@example.org or Paula Edgar at BrooklynLegalPipeline@gmail.com.
