The Minority Summer Internship in Health Law was developed in 2011 by the Health Law
Section of the New York State Bar Association as part of the Bar Association’s Diversity
Challenge to develop and execute initiatives to increase the diversity of its membership,
leadership and programs and to evaluate the results.
The primary goal of the Minority Summer Internship in Health Law program is to increase
representation of lawyers and students from a diverse range of backgrounds in health law.
The Minority Summer Internship in Health Law program will provide students from a diverse
range of backgrounds an opportunity to experience health law practice. The ultimate goal of
the diversity effort of the Health Law Section is to create a network and forge relationships
which will foster greater diversity among health law attorneys throughout New York State.
