Diversity Internship Program

>> View the ACBA Diversity Internship Students 2017-2018 

 The Albany County Bar Association Diversity Internship Program commenced in September of 2000 in an effort to broaden the opportunities for minority law students at Albany Law School to be exposed to practice in a private law firm setting. The Association received awards for the program from both the New York State Bar Association (2002) and American Bar Association (2003).

Since the program’s inception, hundreds of law students have received paid internship opportunities at law firms in the Capital Region. Many of the interns subsequently obtained full-time law firm employment and now are members of the Albany County Bar.

The Association deeply appreciates the dedication and commitment of our firms to hasten the day when private practice in the Capital Region reflects the full diversity of the area's population. If you would like more information on the program, please contact one of the program's Co-chairs, listed below.
