Pro Bono Scholars Program

Started in 2008, the Akin Gump Summer Pro Bono Scholars Program is a two-summer program for top law students who show a strong interest in making pro bono an integral part of their Akin Gump careers. The Pro Bono Scholars are rising second-year law students who work both at the firm and at a public interest organization during the summer. The next (rising third-year) summer, the Pro Bono Scholars are members of the firm’s regular summer associate program.



In 2012, the Pro Bono Scholars Program expanded from our Dallas, New York and Washington, D.C., offices to include our Houston and Los Angeles offices.
