Minority Clerkship Program
KWW participates in the Minority Clerkship Program which was created by the Akron and Cleveland Bar Associations to assist in improving diversity in our region’s legal market. This diversity pipeline program provides the opportunity for qualified minority law students to work as law clerks or summer associates in a firm, legal department, or government agency at the end of their first year of law school. This experience better prepares the students to compete for permanent legal positions in the future. In addition to providing law students with hands-on legal experiences and mentoring opportunities, the Minority Clerkship Program helps create pathways for participating employers such as KWW to continue to build more inclusive and diverse teams within their workplaces.
