Associate Chris Clore spoke at the Second Annual Panel Discussion for Black Male Summer Associates hosted by the gentlemen of 1844 on July 15 2015, at Gibson Dunn LLP. The panel discussion focused on Black male summer associates interning in the New York legal market. The purpose of the panel discussion was to provide Black male summer associates with an opportunity to meet and learn from the collective experience of Black male attorneys who currently practice in New York’s large law firms. Topics ranged from the basics of law firm practice to work assignments, evaluations, the billable hour and beyond.
The host of this panel discussion, 1844, is a group Black male attorneys who mostly practice in the large law firms in NYC. The name 1844 is a reference to the year that the first Black person (Macon Bolling Allen) was admitted to practice law in America.
