Pipeline Programs

Todd & Weld belongs to the Boston Lawyers Group, a consortium of law firms and other organizations working to advance diversity in Boston's legal community. The mission of the Boston Lawyers Group is to support the efforts of its member organizations to identify, recruit, advance, and retain attorneys of color.  We participate in the Boston Lawyers Group 1L Diversity Clerkship Program, which places first-year law students with local firms and other legal organizations for a 10-week summer program.  Participating students gain substantive legal experience, mentoring from Todd & Weld attorneys, and exposure to the Boston legal community.  Our attorneys also volunteer to mentor participating students.
