PB Bar places 20 students in diversity program

The Palm Beach County Bar Association’s Committee for Diversity and Inclusion has placed 20 minority law students in its Summer Diversity Internship Program.

These students will gain valuable legal experience by working with law firms and government agencies in Palm Beach County and will be introduced to the Palm Beach County legal community.

The internship program will run from June through July 29. Interns will work between 20 and 40 hours per week and will participate in a bi-weekly event hosted by the Palm Beach County Bar Association. In addition, each intern will be paired with a mentor who will assist in introducing the student to all the benefits of practicing in Palm Beach County.

“We are very pleased to have the support of so many well-respected law firms, attorneys, and organizations,” said Adam Rabin, chair of the Palm Beach County Committee for Diversity and Inclusion.

“Their commitment to diversity and inclusion within the Palm Beach County community is helping to build a welcoming and diverse legal community that we all can be proud of.”
