State Bar of California

The CCCBA received a joint award, along with the Alameda, Santa Clara and San Francisco Bar Associations, from the State Bar of California for implementing the Bay Area Minority Summer Clerkship Program. This long running program seeks to provide a means for minority law students to gain valuable experience, exposure and mentorship in the legal profession. The objective is to establish a vehicle through which opportunities for minority law students in private law firms, public agencies, and local businesses/ companies are increased in the hope of increasing minority representation in the legal field.
