The Thurgood Marshall Opportunity Law Clerkship is a summer collaborative effort of the Maryland Office of the Attorney General and several local law firms to attract diverse first and second year law students who demonstrate not only a devotion to public service and the public good, but also exceptional leadership potential. Marshall, a native Marylander who was the first African-American member of the US Supreme Court, was a strong believer in advancing opportunities for young people interested in the law. The goal of the program is to encourage students to consider public sector service during their legal careers, and to provide these students with an excellent summer internship that enhances their future employment opportunities. Selected participants will serve in one of the several divisions at the downtown Baltimore location of the Office of the Attorney General. The 8-week clerkship program is paid and includes various receptions and events with sponsoring law firms as well.
