We want to take this opportunity to formally acknowledge and thank each of the firms and organizations (below) that are participating in the Bay Area Minority Summer Clerkship Program this year. Once again we have a tremendous group of employers who are "walking the walk," not just "talking that talk," when it comes to increasing diversity in the legal profession. One of the main reasons BAMSCP continues to be a highly sought after summer clerkship program is our participating employers' genuine commitment to supporting the development of minority law students not just by hiring them, but also by offering mentoring, networking and invaluable practical experience early in their legal careers. More often than not, our students report they forged meaningful relationships, developed professionally, and also had fun during their placement. This is a credit to the dedication of our participating employers who continue, year after year, to make it a worthwhile experience. We look forward to many more years of successful partnership and are deeply grateful for what all of our participating organizations have done to make BAMSCP something we should all be proud of.
