Communities In Schools
This committee partners with Communities In Schools, Inc. to provide summer internships in the legal profession for high school students. HBA firms, corporations, and individuals are recruited by the committee to sponsor student interns. The committee plans and staffs enrichment activities for the students during the summer internship program as well as the Orientation and Program Celebration. At the end of the summer, the committee evaluates the internship program.
The committee is currently seeking Houston area law firms, corporate legal departments, and public interest agencies that are interested in participating in the 2019 HBA/CIS Summer Legal Internship Program. Click here to show your interest
Please contact the HBA/CIS co-chairs if you have any questions.
The HBA/CIS Summer Legal Internship Program came to a close with a mock trial on July 25 and luncheon on July 26 for exemplary minority high school interns employed by Houston law firms.
Thank you to the offices that hired high school interns in the 2018 Summer Program!
