Hall Render sponsors a summer internship program for diverse college students who have an interest in law and/or the health care field. In 2020, internship opportunities will be available in the Detroit, MI; Indianapolis, IN; and Raleigh, NC offices.

“In 2017, I was an undergraduate intern at Hall Render — my first law firm experience. As a first generation college student, it was an incredibly proud moment for me.


In 2018, I started law school and, after interning at Hall Render, I knew health law was my passion.


In 2019, I returned as a 1L clerk and loved every minute of it! In 2020, I will return again as a 2L clerk and couldn’t be happier.


I will always hold Hall Render in a high regard because they see the value in diversity inclusion, mentorship and kindness. They invest time and effort in helping me achieve my goals.


No matter where my career takes me, I will always be grateful for this firm.”
