The North Carolina Bar Association has undertaken various initiatives to encourage and build a more diverse bar. The Minorities in the Profession Committee's Summer Associate Program is one such initiative that provides legal employers the opportunity to work in partnership with the Bar Association and with each other to build a stronger profession and play a vital role in changing the face of the profession. The SAP is designed to provide corporate legal departments and major law firms in North Carolina with an inside track in recruiting some of the state's brightest and most talented minority law students who have completed their first year of law school.

The Career Development Office will hold an information session for students about the SAP in early January. Applications are due to the CDO in mid-January, with interviews with the UNC Law committee to take place soon after. Nominations are then sent to the SAP committee at the N.C. Bar Association, which distributes applications to participating employers. Employers then decide which law students to interview (mid-February), and selections are made by the end of February.

For more information about the program, please contact Lynn Boone in the Career Development Office.
