In 2023, the Adams and Reese Memphis office was once again a worksite for the Memphis Bar Association’s Summer Law Intern Program, also known as SLIP. The program is one of the most unique of its kind in the country and has been in place since 2007.
SLIP provides diverse high school students in Memphis the opportunity to experience the daily legal workplace of private law firms, corporate law divisions, and governmental agencies from around the Memphis area. It also seeks to develop and nurture an interest in the legal profession among young people from underrepresented groups.
Interns work over a four-week period and receive a stipend upon completion of the internship.
Adams and Reese was honored to host local student Miguel Sebastian as our firm’s summer intern. Adams and Reese Memphis office Partner in Charge Ben Fox oversaw the program for the office’s mentorship of Miguel, after meeting Miguel and his family at the program’s opening orientation at Memphis City Hall.
After Miguel completed the internship, Ben joined Miguel at the closing ceremony as Miguel received a certificate to recognize his completion of the program.
