Maynard Law Prep, launched in 2021, seeks to identify diverse undergraduate talent who reflect the potential to be candidates for our summer clerkship program upon entering law school. The ideal candidate is a current student or recent graduate from an accredited 4-year college or university considering law school or wants to learn more about the legal profession.

Maynard Law Prep is designed to provide: (1) insight into the legal industry, (2) an overview of the structure and history of the firm, (3) exposure to our attorneys and other diverse lawyers and community leaders, and (4) an understanding of the firm’s role in the legal and broader community. The program will be executed much like the summer clerkship program. It will familiarize the pre-law interns with various areas of practice through weekly seminars offering them practical work experiences. Upon arrival and throughout the program, the interns will have the opportunity to work on a variety of legal projects, providing exposure to practice groups throughout the firm.

Our 2023 Maynard Law Prep program will be based out of the firm’s Birmingham office and run from May 15, 2023 – June 9, 2023. The program seeks students who have excelled academically. We will look favorably upon students engaged outside the classroom in extracurricular activities, volunteer opportunities and/or positions of leadership.

All interested applicants should submit: (1) a completed application form, (2) an undergraduate transcript, (3) an updated resume’, and (4) a personal statement by Wednesday, March 1, 2023. Based on these submissions, we will select a group of candidates to interview. These interviews will be held in March 2023. Interns will be notified regarding selection for the program promptly following the completion of interviews.
