The DIP was established in 2010 to provide diverse law students with the opportunity to obtain practical experience in the legal profession and gain exposure to the Palm Beach County legal community while working with local law firms and government agencies. Prior to 2010, the program was known as the Minority Law Clerk Program and focused on providing students with historically disadvantaged backgrounds legal work experience. In expanding the program, the Palm Beach County Bar Association and Committee for Diversity and Inclusion intend for DIP interns to gain valuable work experience, be able to network with local attorneys and members of the judiciary, have opportunities at future employment, and ultimately decide to begin their legal career in Palm Beach County—continuing our broader goal of creating a diverse Bar Association that reflects the diversity of Palm Beach County and the larger South Florida community. Since its creation, law firms from many different practice areas and many different sizes have participated in the DIP as employers. State and local government agencies also have participated and employed DIP interns. Previous DIP interns have been offered opportunities for future, permanent employment due to their participation in the program. However, future employment is not guaranteed.
