Summer Scholars Internship Program

Sponsored by AABA Diversity and Inclusion Division in partnership with the Anne Arundel County Bar Foundation

AABA Diversity and Inclusion Division initiated the Summer Scholars Program to create, nurture, and sustain an inclusive and diverse legal community in Anne Arundel County.

The Summer Scholars Program partners with the Anne Arundel Bar Foundation, local law firms/legal organizations, and regional law schools to facilitate the placement of rising second and third-year law students in summer intern/law clerk positions within participating employers in the Anne Arundel County legal community.

The selected students will be hired for summer internships with the hopes to build a more diverse talent pipeline that will feed into our legal community and provide more opportunities or people from underrepresented groups.

Application Process
Student candidates must provide the following documents for their consideration:
Cover letter indicating the student’s top three preferred areas of practice/interest
Writing Sample (maximum of six pages, one-sided and double spaced)

Selection Criteria

Rising 2L and 3L students are invited to apply. 


The AABA Summer Scholars Program is a paid opportunity for which each student will receive a stipend of at least $6,000 for the summer.  The program will be 10 weeks.
