Summer Mentorship Program

Groom Law Group created and maintains a 1L Summer Mentorship Program.  This Program complements existing summer employment in Washington, DC for rising second-year law students from populations historically underrepresented in the legal profession.  Our goal is assist these law students as they prepare for the transition from school to legal career.
