Shaheen & Gordon Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summer Intern Program!

Accepting applications for Summer 2023! The Shaheen & Gordon Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summer Program will offer a unique summer employment opportunity for 2-4 students who have just finished their first or second year of law school. S&G Summer Interns will spend approximately 6 weeks rotating among our Concord, Dover, Manchester, and Nashua, NH offices, and our office in Portland, ME, doing varied, high-quality legal work with experienced attorneys, well-established in their fields. Our Interns will spend the other 4 weeks working at a one of our non-profit partner organizations, all prominent non-profit organizations in the region. The match of interns with nonprofit organizations will take into account the interests of the Interns and the needs of our non-profit partners. Throughout the entire approximately 10 weeks, S&G will pay our interns consistent with the salary of a first-year associate at the firm.

Upon successful completion of the S&G Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summer Program, Interns will be eligible for an offer either to return the following summer (for first year law students), an offer of employment from our firm (for second year law students), or, in the event that no positions are then currently available, S&G will use the breadth and depth of our resources to help our Interns find employment after law school.

The S&G Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summer Program is open to all first- and second-year law students, regardless of race, color, religion, citizenship, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, military service, disability, or any other characteristic or condition protected by applicable law.

Any interested student should submit the following application materials:

  • an unofficial law school transcript;
  • a resume or CV; and
  • a personal statement (approx. 500 to 1,000 words) addressing how you have demonstrated resilience and tenacity that will contribute to the diversity of experience across S&G’s practice and culture, and what you believe demonstrates your qualification for the internship including, but not limited to, a description of your academic and leadership achievements; noteworthy contributions to the community or otherwise; and/or how you overcame adversity.

Please submit application materials and any questions you may have to Christine Craig, a partner in Shaheen & Gordon’s personal injury group, co-chair of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, and coordinator of the Shaheen & Gordon Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summer Program at
