Shadowing Opportunities Available for “2018 Suit Up for the Future” Program


The LSBA, in partnership with the Louisiana Bar Foundation and Just the Beginning, will host the 2018 Suit Up for the Future High School Summer Legal Institute and Internship Program from June 11-29. Attorney volunteers are needed for “shadowing” opportunities the week of June 18-22.


This program is available to incoming high school juniors, seniors, and recent graduates who are interested in the legal profession. Students participate in a three-week legal institute in June, during which they attend an abridged law school session, field trips to law schools and courts, and an internship consisting of shadowing at area law offices and courts.

Shadowing Opportunities. Students are assigned to “shadow” attorneys at firms, courts and organizations during the second week of the program. This is a great opportunity for students to see for themselves what attorneys do on a daily basis; and to spend one-on-one time with attorneys in the workforce.  If you or your firm would be interested in providing a shadowing opportunity for one or more Suit Up students, email diversity@lsba.org.
