Maddin Hauser’s Summer Institute

06.01.21

Free Six-Week Online Summer Program:
June 16 – July 23, 2021

Due to COVID-19, many law firms were forced to forego, or severely limit, their summer law student programs in 2020 and 2021. Many 1L and 2L law students were then unable to obtain a summer law firm learning experience. Due to the limited number of openings, students of diverse backgrounds, or with other life challenges like schedule or family obligations, faced even greater than ordinary obstacles to being selected for a summer law firm experience.

The Success Through Empowerment & Engagement (SEE) Committee at Maddin, Hauser, Roth & Heller, P.C. seeks to meet the need for law student summer learning experiences by offering a free, six-week online summer program for currently enrolled law students, covering transactional, litigation, and new associates. At the conclusion of the program, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion along with real-world, practical law firm learning experience.

The Mission of the Maddin Hauser SEE Committee is to maintain and enhance a law firm environment and culture where attorneys from diverse backgrounds can succeed, achieve and lead internally at the firm and externally in the community, to improve recruitment, retention and advancement of attorneys from diverse backgrounds, and to promote business and personal development, business connections and networking activities.

Come join us, we welcome you!
