Atlanta Bar Summer Law Internship Program Selection

Dear SLIP applicants,
 
We are pleased to announce that the students listed below have been selected for the 2016 Atlanta Bar Association Summer Law Internship Program.
 
For those who were selected, you MUST reply to this email to confirm that you are committed to participating in the program and that you will not have any conflicts with the program dates by 5:00 pm on Tuesday, May 10, 2016, by email to Denisha Wise (dwise@atlantabar.org).  If we do not hear back from you by then your spot is subject to being forfeited.
 
Attached you will find your Intern Contract.  All participating interns and their parent/guardian must read, sign and scan/mail the attached form with your acceptance email by Tuesday, May 10, 2016.(To be clear, if you are accepting , reply in one mail your confirmation that you accept and attach your Intern Contract.)
 
As previously advised, there will be four mandatory orientations on the following dates and times: Friday, June 3, 2016, from 8:30 am to 11:00 am, Saturday, June 4, 2016, from 8:30 am – 11:30 am, Monday, June 6, 2016, from 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm, and Friday, June 10, 2016, from 8:45 am to 11 am. The June 3,4 and 10 Orientations will be held at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP (201 17th Street, Suite 1700, Atlanta, GA 30363).  We recognize that some of the selected Interns have religious reasons why you cannot attend the Orientation on Saturday.  Please dress professionally, be prepared and be on time (early) or you will be subject to dismissal.  The June 6 Orientation  will be held at the State Bar of Georgia (104 Marietta Street, Atlanta, GA 30303).  Again, if you have decided you do not wish to be an Intern, please email Denisha Wise (dwise@atlantabar.org) and advise her of your change of plans. 
 
This is an all-in program.  Mandatory schedule attached.   If  you cannot be  fully committed from  June 3-July 22, we understand; we just need to know.
 
For those who were not selected, we regret that we do not have a spot for everyone who applied.  We can say without hesitation that this year's group of applicants was the best we have ever had.   If you would like to be placed on the Waiting List for the 2016 Intern Program, please email Ms. Wise and advise her of your interest.  In previous years, we have gone to the Waiting List.  We also encourage students who were not selected for the 2016 Intern Program to consider applying next summer.  Applications for 2017 will be available on or about March 1, 2017. The fact that you have applied previously will weigh in your favor.
 
 
We look forward to working with you all.
