Bristol-Myers Squibb, winner of a 2009 Employers of Choice commendation from Diversity & the Bar, Vol. 11, Nov./Dec. 2009 at 16, operates a ten-week summer internship program for minority law students. This past summer the program allowed eight of them to experience working in the legal department. The program has grown steadily over the ten years it has existed (See my post of March 19, 2009: interns from law school with 6 references.).
Among other activities, the interns participate in “lunch and learn” sessions and meet with the general counsel at the end of the internship to give a summary presentation of their work.
