The Bay Area Minority Summer Clerkship Program (the Program) is sponsored by the Santa Clara County Bar Association (SCCBA), Alameda County Bar Association (ACBA), and the Contra Costa Bar Association (CCCBA).

 

The employers in the Program are legal employers who agree to hire, train, and supervise at least one summer clerk. 

 

Monitoring

Each employer is charged with the successful implementation of the Program in their office. An associate and/or partner from each participating employer is designated as the liaison to the Minority Clerkship Committee with respect to all matters arising during the course of the summer. The minority summer clerks will be expected to participate in the employers' summer program in the same manner as other first and second year summer clerks. The Clerkship Committee will maintain contact with each of the employers during the Program to monitor the progress of the students and ensure the purposes of the Program are being effectuated. 

 

Offers

Participating employers are under no obligation to make offers of second-year summer or associate employment to the students participating in this Program. Students should therefore not expect such an outcome. However, employers are not prohibited from making such offers should there be a mutual desire. The rationale for removing the offer decision from the Program is  that the Program is a long-term investment of the sponsoring bar associations, with emphasis on the educational aspect of the Program -- both for employers and students. 

 

Selection

Each sponsoring bar association appoints two persons to the Selection Committee. The Committee makes selections and assignments based on the application packets received and oral interviews. Employers are refereed randomly the names of three students, one of whom will most likely be placed with their firm. Employers will interview those three students according to the program timeline, and the Selection Committee will take those employer evaluations into consideration when the final placement of students is made. BAMSCP participants are matched by practice area of the firm, geography, and best fit for the student and the law office.

 

Salary

Students are to be paid the standard summer clerk salary for their particular employer. Salaries may vary from employer to employer.
