Minority Clerkship Program Offers Summer Enrichment
In addition to the clerking, the class of 2010 will engage in a variety of other activities. This year the Minorities in the Law committee planned a speaker series with lunch, which includes a networking opportunity with attorneys that is a continuation of a mentoring relationship initiated earlier this spring.
Luis Alcalde and Joseph Mas, shared career development tips with over thirty clerks at the kick off luncheon June 2, announced co-chairs Philip King and Karim Ali. Janet Green Marbley, Administrator for the Supreme Court of Ohio Clients’ Security Fund will pass on her unique perspectives, July 7.
For the third year, those attending the Legal Research and Information Resources committee seminar also participated in a cultural competence seminar led by Neal Semel of Diversity Matters. Majority and minority summer clerks were challenged to redefine diversity and its impact on managing change, dealing with people not like themselves and building relationships to better achieve the goals of the employer.
The Managing Partners Diversity Initiative sponsored this portion of the seminar, and the Minorities in the Law committee provided lunch with twenty-four legal employers.
