Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 18, 2014
In their first year of participation in the Houston Bar Association’s Communities In Schools’ Summer Legal Internship Program, Mostyn Law Firm has now added a second high school intern for the eight-week program. For the last 20-years this program has provided high school students from at-risk backgrounds with the opportunity to work in local law firms. The goal of the program is to help promising high school students onto the first rung of the professional career ladder and to invest in a diverse, talented workforce that will secure Houston’s economic future.
Christian Smith, Mostyn Law Firm’s second hire in the internship program is an upcoming senior at Lamar High School in Houston, Texas. In addition to attending school and participating in the Houston Bar Association’s Communities In Schools’ Summer Legal Internship Program, Smith plays basketball with the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and is a member of Tops Teens for America.
“This is an exciting and important opportunity for me,” Smith said. “I think the employees at the Mostyn Law Firm have a lot to teach me and I look forward to working with them this summer.”
In addition to working as an intern for local law firms, students participating in the program attend weekly lunchtime seminars, visit a federal judge’s courtroom and participate in a mock trial presided over by a Harris County District Judge.
