ST. LOUIS - July 27, 2021 - PRLog -- The Association of Corporate Counsel, St. Louis Chapter (ACC STL), the pre-eminent professional development organization serving in-house counsel, kicked off its 2021 Diversity and Inclusion Summer Internship Program with 11 law school students participating.

The ACC STL Diversity Internship Program, which started in 2012, provides participants with meaningful exposure to in-house practice. Law school students who participate in the program will learn about the various areas of legal advocacy and general corporate practice that in-house counsel handle, as well as the relationship between providing business and legal advice to clients in a variety of substantive areas.

"The Diversity and Inclusion Summer Internship Program has been an initiative the ACC St. Louis chapter has been very dedicated to in the last several years. Diversity and inclusion efforts must be continuous and thoughtful to enact systemic change. This program allows for one immediate way for our chapter to make steps towards that change, as it gives us the opportunity to do the important work of mentoring and supporting law students who are typically underrepresented in the legal profession," said Vikas Sunkari, ACC STL 2021 Diversity and Inclusion Summer Internship Program Chairperson, and Senior Legal Counsel, System Legal Affairs for SSM Health.
