DCP Virtual Celebration participants

The 2020 Diversity Clerkship Program participants.

The State Bar’s Diversity Clerkship Program is a 10 week​ paid summer employment opportunity where first-year Marquette University Law School and University of Wisconsin Law School students with diverse backgrounds are matched with a wide array of employers from private law firms, corporate legal departments and governmental agencies. Student clerks gain practical legal experience, and participating employers obtain valuable legal support.
