TIMELINE — SUMMER 2010 : DLA Piper Which Housed CaliforniaALL Partnered with CaliforniaALL’s Freada Klein Kapor’s Level Playing Field Institute to Provide Internships for Minority Undergraduates in DLA Piper’s San Francisco (TLR Note: Video Dated 2009)


As part of our pipeline initiative, the San Francisco office hosted undergraduate student interns in a program sponsored by Level Playing Field Institute.

Throughout the summer, we again partnered with the Level Playing Field’s IDEAL Scholars program and the Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholars program to provide summer internships for minority undergraduates in our San Francisco Office.

The Level Playing Field Institute’s IDEAL Scholars program is a six-week internship for low-income, under-represented students of color attending the University of California-Berkeley who are interested in pursuing law school. The Jackie Robinson Foundation (JRF) provides four-year college scholarships to disadvantaged students of color to ensure their success in college and develop their leadership potential. DLA Piper’s close relationship with the JRF, including our providing office space and resources to JRF’s West Coast operations in Los Angeles, came about through Los Angeles Managing Partner Michael Meyer, who is on the JRF board and is a longtime supporter of its scholarship program.

During their internship with us, the students shadow DLA Piper lawyers and staff; at the culmination of their internship, they deliver a presentation on the functions and synergies of the departments with which they worked. The goal of the internship is to give the students some perspective of what it is like to work in a large law firm and to develop an appreciation for all jobs performed. Hear from past IDEAL scholars in a YouTube presentation provided by the Level Playing Field Institute.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
