  • Law School 4045

    Come learn about diversity, inclusion & pro bono in BigLaw. This program will also feature information on two of Akin Gump's programs for first-year law students: the Akin Gump/Robert Strauss Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship Program and the Pro Bono Scholars Program. The Strauss Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship Program is a two-summer program in which students spend their 1L summer at the firm for six weeks working on legal matters and engaging in diversity & inclusion efforts followed by a secondment-style assignment with a firm client for four weeks. The Pro Bono Scholars Program is a two-summer program in which students work at a public interest organization for at least seven weeks and four weeks at the firm, focusing on pro bono assignments. During their second summer, scholars of both programs join the summer associate program. These programs are offered in Akin Gump's Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York or Washington, D.C. offices.
