Law Clerkship Program

#BlackWomenLawyersMatter

Elizabeth L. Carter, Esq., LLC is committed to increasing the racial and gender diversity of the field of securities law by providing a more welcoming, culturally-competent and representative attorney-client engagement process. This is especially important for underrepresented entrepreneurs who often face unique challenges to raising capital and gaining access to professional support services for their enterprises. For instance, studies have shown that underrepresented clients fare better when represented by attorneys who share their cultural, racial, gender, and/or socioeconomic background, especially Black clients.

Our #BlackWomenLawyersMatter Law Clerkship Program is a paid internship opportunity that provides legal training, client exposure, and law practice management experience to second-year (2L) and third-year (3L)  law students of color. We pay particular attention to law students who identify as Black women and Afro-Latina due to their low representation within securities law, and the quick growth of Black women in entrepreneurship. As a Law Clerk, the law student will get hands-on experience with forming and representing cooperatives, investment funds, nonprofits, and small businesses. This includes drafting governing documents such as operating agreements and by-laws, and investment documents such as subscription agreements and offering statements.  The Law Clerk will also gain experience in legal research, analysis and writing as it pertains to legal issues within securities and business law.
