Summer Clerkship Program

Summer Clerkship Program

The SCP Committee coordinates the Wolverine Bar’s annual summer clerkship program, which is designed to increase the number of minority attorneys employed as partners; associates; in-house counsel; and similarly, well-respected positions within the legal community. The SCP places student law firms and corporations in the metropolitan Detroit community in furtherance of the program’s goals.

Participating firms and corporations pay the interns’ salaries directly; while the Wolverine Bar incurs program costs for interview workshops, writing workshops, training and receptions
