MBA Diversity Committee
Celebrates an
Eventful Summer

O

n July 23rd, The MBA Diversity Committee proudly celebrated the
end of another successful iteration of the Robert E. Slota, Jr. Summer
1L Diversity Program. The closing reception provided an opportunity
for the program's 13 interns and representatives of 17 host firms to share
stories of their experiences in the 8-weeks they spent together over the summer.
Students and attorneys alike spoke of the benefits of the program, including
lessons learned, accomplishments embraced, and friendships formed. Also
recognized were this year's 11 generous sponsors who made it possible for the
Committee to provide more opportunities than ever before to the impressive
participants.
Committee Co-Vice Chairs, Jimmy Chong and Lauren Hughes, introduced
the interns and host firm representatives, and presented each student with a
$1000 tuition scholarship on behalf of the MBA. The event also honored the
three recipients of this year's Champion For the Cause of Diversity in the Legal
Profession Award, Carolyn R. Mirabile, Esq. and Gerald L. Shoemaker, Jr., Esq.,
presented by the Honorable Daniel J. Clifford, and Nancy Walsh, presented by
Jimmy Chong.
Demonstrating their deep commitment to the cause of diversity and
generous support of the MBA, Affinity Partner Republic Bank presented a
$4000 donation to launch the Montgomery Bar Foundation's new Diversity
in Justice and Education Fund, which will support grants to government and
public interest organizations who provide opportunities to diverse law students
through this program. The MBA and the MBF are grateful for Republic's
support and generosity, and look forward to working with them for many years
to come!
If you would like to help the MBA continue to expand on its
commitment to diversity in the legal profession, contact Nancy Walsh
(nancywalsh@montgomerybar.org) to learn how!
