ChIPs Advocacy, Leadership and Innovation (ALI) Summer 2017 Program Application - SF Bay Area
ChIPs is seeking motivated and intellectually curious female teenage high school students to participate in ALI program for Summer 2017. This is a unique opportunity to learn about careers in law, technology, and government, and engage in meaningful interactions with women leaders in these areas. The program will be offered over two days, on June 20-21, 2017 from 8:15-1:30. On day one, students will have an orientation and “mock” law class at UC Hastings Law School in San Francisco, with an interactive class discussion of a contemporary legal case. The students will also observe federal district court proceedings at the San Francisco courthouse and have an opportunity to interact with attorneys, judges and court personnel. On day two, students will meet at the Silicon Valley office of Orrick, Herrington, and Sutcliffe, LLP, a law firm with twenty-five offices worldwide. The students will have an orientation to Intellectual Property law followed by an interactive class discussion, and learn from and interact with Bay Area attorneys in different practice areas.  
 
To further its purpose of increasing diversity and inclusion in these areas, ChIPs seeks participants from different socioeconomic backgrounds and learning experiences. The ideal candidate need not have any legal experience, but should be interested in exploring the legal field. Candidates should be in or entering high school in fall 2017. Interested candidates should complete and send the application via the link below by April 24, 2017 for priority consideration as admission is limited.
