Pathways to Careers
in the Law

 Summer is right around the corner, and one of JTB’s cornerstone Leader programs is underway. The Summer Judicial Internship Diversity Project which JTB started in 2010, and in 2014 became a collaboration with the Judicial Resources Committee of the U.S. Judicial Conference. National in scope, the SJID Project has placed over 600 1st- and 2nd-year law students from underrepresented backgrounds in federal appellate, district, bankruptcy, and magistrate judges’ chambers. During the summer, these interns draft bench memoranda, judicial orders, and opinions on a variety of substantive matters. This is invaluable preparation for their future legal and judicial careers. This summer, JTB has been able to place 112 interns with 103 judges. With the generous support of our donors, we are able to provide $2,000 stipends to a portion of those interns.
You can help support our judicial interns and all of our scholars with your donation to JTB’s Law Day All Month Campaign.

Chicago Volunteers Needed!

We are still recruiting legal professionals to serve as volunteers for our summer ConnectED program for students in the Chicago area! There are opportunities for live and pre-recorded sessions on a variety of topics to fit your schedule and specialty. We could not provide our quality, engaging programs for free without the generous contributions of our volunteers! Register here to get involved. 
This year’s Summer Judicial Internship Diversity Project is sponsored in part by the Kirkland & Ellis Pledge Fund.
