Baker McKenzie is pleased to welcome 13 interns from 12 universities to its ID&E Business Development, Marketing & Communications Summer Internship Program. This eight-week program is offered to diverse undergraduate students interested in business development, marketing or legal careers and follows Baker McKenzie's continued commitment to inclusion, diversity and equity.

Now in its third summer, this is a special year for the internship program, which was recently honored with the Firm's annual Paul Rawlinson award. The award recognizes initiatives that increase opportunities for young people from underrepresented groups and will be used to expand the program's global reach.

Throughout the summer, interns will support the Firm's business development team, working on client engagement, marketing, communications and business development initiatives. This year's program will also include opportunities to support the Center on Gender Justice & Opportunity at Georgetown Law, whose mission is to eliminate gender and racial disparities in education, health care and the legal system.
