As you start college or continue to work toward your degree, please allow us to support you during your college years and in pursuit of admission to law school. Not only can we connect you with those in Cleveland's outstanding legal community, but we also offer programs to help you stay connected and gain valuable experience.

Louis Stokes Scholars Program

“Changing Lives, One Student at a Time”

The Stokes Scholars Program is a pipeline diversity initiative through which college students interested in pursuing careers in the law engage in paid summer legal internships of eight-week duration -- at Cleveland law firms, courts and legal nonprofits. Participating students, known as Stokes Scholars, must be graduates of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District or East Cleveland Municipal School District and enrolled in college or scheduled to begin college in the fall following the summer program. Aspiring Stokes Scholars are asked to complete an application and participate in personal interviews.

Applications for Summer 2019 internships are due before or on April 19, 2019.
