• McGuireWoods/NLF Internship Program. The Program supports students interested in the legal profession and will help students develop a commitment to advocacy on behalf of the APA community. The Program seeks to achieve these goals by providing undergraduate and law school students with meaningful internship experiences at the Washington DC offices of NAPABA and NLF.
• Charlotte Legal Diversity Clerkship Program: Through a partnership with Mecklenburg County Bar's Diversity & Inclusion Committee, McGuireWoods sponsors a 1L student for seven weeks as a summer associate.
