At Greenberg Traurig, we are committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. It has been and continues to be our goal, to foster a well-balanced workforce that contains a significant presence of minorities and women.  To further that goal, Greenberg Traurig is accepting applications for 1L Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Scholars for our 2023 Summer Program in our Chicago office.  We are seeking ambitious candidates with strong academic credentials and excellent writing skills.

With our broad geographic and practice platform, law students will find wide-ranging professional opportunities as they start their legal careers at Greenberg Traurig. We use creativity to educate – and ultimately empower – our new attorneys. In addition to our mentoring programs, we provide our new associates with high-level training in client management, business development, collaboration, and cultural skills. Our success hinges on our ability to develop a class of lawyers who can adapt to our clients’ emerging needs, and through entrepreneurship and rewarding initiative we provide our incoming attorneys with the resources necessary to meet that goal.

Interested candidates should apply and include a resume, law school transcript, and writing sample, all in PDF format.  If possible, please provide a non-law school writing sample.
