Association of Corporate Counsel Greater Philadelphia Diversity Corporate Internship Program sponsors an annual full-time, eight-week Diversity Corporate Summer Internship Program, aimed at increasing diversity within corporate legal departments. Law students who are members of minority groups traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession are invited to apply to participate in the program. At a minimum, each intern will be compensated a total of $7,500.00 for participation in the program, though a company may elect to compensate an individual intern at a higher rate. 

The Greater Philadelphia Chapter is a leading chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACCGPA), the world's largest organization serving the professional and business interests of attorneys who practice in the legal departments of corporations, associations and other private-sector organizations. ACC Greater Philadelphia has over 1,400 members who practice as lawyers in more than 400 organizations, most of whom live and work in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
