Shenker Russo & Clark Associates Mishka Woodley and Adriel Colon, are were joined by Casey Ciceron at the Albany County Bar Association Diversity Internship Program Reception. Ciceron is a law clerk and the firm’s most recent hire through the diversity internship program.
The Albany County Bar Association Diversity Internship Program commenced in September of 2000 in an effort to broaden the opportunities for minority law students at Albany Law School to be exposed to practice in a private law firm setting. The Association received awards for the program from both the New York State Bar Association (2002) and American Bar Association (2003).
Since the program’s inception, hundreds of law students have received paid internship opportunities at law firms in the Capital Region. Many of the interns subsequently obtained full-time law firm employment and now are members of the Albany County Bar.
