The American Bar Association’s (ABA) Commission on Disability Rights is pleased to partner with Accenture LLP to provide a meaningful summer internship opportunity for a very limited number of highly motivated, first-year law students living with disabilities.
The 2019 summer law intern program will be held at Accenture’s downtown Chicago offices. The 1L summer internship will run approximately 9 weeks—from June 10 through August 2, 2019. Interns will be paid a stipend of approximately $6,500.
The program will provide interns the opportunity to work with attorneys who support the broad reach of Accenture’s businesses. Other features of the program include:
• Participation in training programs presented by Accenture attorneys highlighting different areas of the business and the legal department;
• Pairing with an attorney who will serve as a manager during the program and provide guidance on projects;
• Pairing with a mentor who will serve as an additional advisor on resume review, interviewing, skill development, networking and other individual needs;
• Practice interviews and presentations and shadow attorneys on various projects; and
• Opportunities to meet with selected local firms for potential 2L internships.
• Be (or become)a member of the American Bar Association;
• Be a law student with a disability;
• Be enrolled at an ABA accredited law school and have successfully completed the first year with a minimum 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent); and
• Be scheduled for graduation in spring 2021 (fulltime students) or spring 2022 (part time students).
The ideal applicant will have financial or business related experience or interest. The internship takes place at Accenture’s Chicago Office – 161 N. Clark Street, Chicago IL 60601.
