Sidley Austin announced it is teaming with MetLife in support of Sidley’s Prelaw Scholars Initiative and offer a legal internship to a Sidley Prelaw Scholar who has completed first year law school studies.

The Sidley Prelaw Scholars Initiative, now in its fifth year, seeks to enlarge the pool of diverse students able to attend law school and enter the profession by providing financial support and mentoring during the law school application process to diverse undergraduate students.

The intern will spend a ten week legal internship in the New York office of MetLife’s Law Department as part of its 2010 Summer Law Clerk program and have the opportunity to gain work experience while networking with lawyers and business professionals.


Sidley Prelaw Scholars, chosen from college juniors and seniors who demonstrate academic excellence and financial need, receive a $2,500 scholarship to cover tuition, an additional stipend to reimburse the cost of a commercial LSAT preparation course, as well as application fees for as many as seven accredited law schools.

This year, applications were received from students attending more than fifty colleges and universities nationwide. Other critical components of the initiative include: coaching on how to complete a successful law school application and pre-law school seminar instruction on the structure of the American legal system, as well as an introduction to the substance of the required common law first-year courses.

Sidley Austin LLP is one of the world’s largest full-service law firms, with approximately 1700 lawyers practicing in 17 U.S. and international cities.
