1L Diversity Pipeline Program

In 2014, Epstein Becker Green launched a 1L Pipeline Program. The mission of this program is to identify a pipeline of 1L (first-year law school) students with diverse backgrounds who will contribute to the firm’s core practice areas while gaining valuable professional and real life experience with EBG lawyers and the firm’s clients. During the program, candidates will partner with EBG lawyers while gaining exposure to the firm’s clients during project assignments developed specifically for this program.   Law students who participate in this Diversity Pipeline Program can earn placement as a 2L in the firm’s Summer Associate Program.  In addition, 1L Diversity Pipeline Program participants who receive and accept an offer to return to the Firm as a 2L summer associate will receive a bonus in the amount of $10,000.
