    The Chester County Bar Association is pleased to provide you with information for our 2021 1L/2L Diverse Law Student (DLS) Summer Program! This program offers first and second-year students a unique opportunity for summer employment in outstanding law firms and/or corporate law departments following their first year of law school. 

    This program is designed to afford first-year law students who self-identify with those groups historically discriminated against on the basis of disability, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression or who otherwise come from a disadvantaged background the opportunity for summer employment. The goal of the 1L/2L DLS Summer Program is to achieve greater diversity in the Chester County legal community.  

    Application through this program will not preclude a student from otherwise seeking or accepting a job at any participating firm or organization or preclude the firm or organization hiring the student outside of our program.

    Candidates must demonstrate the ability, based on academic achievement, writing ability and other accomplishments, to succeed in our program. We hope this program will enable students who participate the opportunity to experience the law firm or corporate law environment in Chester County and, hopefully assist them in their future legal careers as well.

    Application and details can be found here.

  • Work the Polls in November for Pro Bono Hours

    Students can gain pro bono hours by volunteering as poll workers for November’s election.

    Pennsylvania needs you in November! Because of the shortage of poll workers in the June primary and the resulting voter suppression, the Kline School of Law is partnering with the Voter Project to offer pro bono credit hours for students who volunteer as poll workers in November’s election.

    Students who wish to receive pro bono credit for their work as poll workers must:

    • Sign up to be a poll worker!
    • File their project registration form with Rashida West as soon as possible.
    • Track their hours using the student timesheet.
    • Donate their compensation to the Public Interest Experience Auction (details on this requirement are forthcoming). Because of school policies, all compensation received from poll working and related trainings must be donated to the Public Interest Experience Auction in order to receive pro bono credit. Students who do not wish to donate are still encouraged to volunteer as poll workers but cannot receive pro bono hours.

    All students who are selected by their counties to be poll workers will receive training from experts at the Voter Project as well as their county. Poll workers will also be provided with personal protective equipment (PPE) for the duration of their time.

    If we want to deliver justice for everyone who calls Pennsylvania home, we must come together and make this year’s general election a success. Sign up here to learn more about becoming a poll worker and to ensure that every single vote counts.
