2019 Charlotte Legal Diversity Clerkship
Program Details


Assignment Law Firms and Legal Departments

The 2019 CLDC program will consist of seven weeks with a participating law firm and three weeks with a participating legal department for a total of 10 weeks in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area. The start date for the 2019 CLDC program is May 13, 2019.

Potential students selected to participate in the 2019 CLDC program will be matched with a law firm and a corporate legal department. Although all of the law firms are located in downtown Charlotte, a number of the participating corporate legal departments are not.


Each law firm will set the compensation for its clerk based on the compensation provided to its summer associates. The corporate legal departments will determine the weekly compensation for the last three weeks of the program. 


Selected clerks are responsible for securing proper housing during their summer in Charlotte; however, the CLDC program is happy to provide resources and recommendations on housing options. Some firm representatives may have additional resources or provide subsidized housing during the summer.


Selected clerks are responsible for securing appropriate transportation to satisfy work and program requirements during the summer.
