News / July 29, 2020

This summer, BakerHostetler continued to support efforts to increase the diversity pipeline into the legal profession with its annual participation in The NYC Bar Association’s Thurgood Marshall Summer Law Internship Program. The intensive program places diverse New York City public high school students with legal employers for the summer and provides them with additional programming designed to help them prepare for a career. Associates Darley Maw and Chloe Fischetti served as assignment coordinators for this year’s intern, Faija Choudhury, who joined the New York office on July 13 as a recent graduate of the High School of Economics & Finance with a strong interest in business. Choudhury worked remotely during the four-week program; she will be attending Babson College.
