Sidley Austin, the firm that briefly employed both Barack and Michelle Obama, has launched a new diversity mentorship program for rising 2Ls. What’s different is the goal: “To help diverse lawyers succeed in the legal profession, even if they do not work at Sidley.”

Sidley associates in Washington, D.C., have been paired with 11 law students. Only those from schools where Sidley recruits are eligible to apply. Of the students selected, none currently work for Sidley (admittedly, the firm rarely seeks summer associates from among law students who have just completed their first year).
