Volunteer Opportunities Open for 2019 Suit Up for the Future Program


The 2019 summer program for high school students interested in the legal profession is scheduled for June 10-28.

Volunteer for an hour (noon-1 p.m.) to talk to students. Or, sign up for the “shadowing” program (June 17-21).

The Suit Up for the Future 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.

• Volunteer Speakers. Attorneys are invited to volunteer their time from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. to spend time talking with the Suit Up students and offer advice and substantive information on topics like professionalism, ethics, legal career paths, and workplace etiquette and attire. 

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.

To volunteer or learn more, email the LSBA Member Outreach and Diversity team at diversity@lsba.org
