In 2016, Drake University unveiled the new Law Opportunity Leadership Program to provide internships, mentorship and leadership training for underrepresented students.
After discussions with leaders at Drake Law about this new program, Davis Brown joined as an inaugural sponsor of the program. The summer after their first year of law school, the selected students will participate in two five-week internships at sponsor organizations, one in the legal department of a Des Moines area company and the second in a law firm.
In the five-week internship at Davis Brown, the student will join the summer associates program learning first-hand about the private practice of law through formal and informal training and professional networking. Summer associates assist shareholders and associates on challenging, sophisticated, and complex legal matters.
Davis Brown attorneys are proud to support this program and the growth and development of underrepresented students in the study and practice of law.
