Please join David Botter, Firmwide Hiring Partner, and Lauren Connell, Pro Bono Counsel, to learn about pro bono at large law firms and Akin Gump’s 2018 Pro Bono Scholars Program. The Akin Gump Summer Pro Bono Scholars Program provides top first-year law students interested in law firm practice the opportunity to develop an early expertise in public interest law. The skills acquired during this program build a foundation for pro bono work and billable practice that will serve participants throughout their careers. The program spans two summers, with the Pro Bono Scholars working both at the firm and at a public interest organization during the first summer as rising 2Ls. The next summer as a rising 3L, the Pro Bono Scholars join the firm as participants in the firm’s general summer associate program. In 2018, the Pro Bono Scholars Program will be offered in their Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, D.C. offices. Applications available January 2-February 16, 2018.
