What exactly will I be doing in LegalTrek?
A syllabus will be provided to explain exactly what you will be doing each week and what types of assignments and preparation you must make in advance. Please read the beginning of the syllabus that sets forth the expectations and level of commitment expected from each scholar.
(See the syllabus from the 2017 LegalTrek Program.)
Will I have access to a legal internship if I participate in LegalTrek?
No, an internship is not part of the program at this time. All LegalTrek scholars regardless of year in school will be assigned a law-firm mentor and you will meet with your mentor throughout the summer. You may be able to build relationships for future internship opportunities through this mentor, or your LegalTrek network.
For additional questions regarding the application process or about the program, please email the Executive Director of Chicago Committee on Minorities in Large Law Firms, Jennifer Reddien.
