Health Law Section Minority Summer Internship Program

2014 Summer Minority Internship Program

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.
