Arnstein & Lehr Summer Associate Program Featured in Crain’s Chicago Business
Arnstein & Lehr LLP Chicago managing partner Michael Gesas was quoted in the Crain’s Chicago Business article, “Helping black women find the path to law firm partner,” about the Pipeline Program, a coaching opportunity for first-year students that aims to increase the number of black female lawyers at elite law firms.
The program was co-founded by Chasity Boyce, associate general counsel in Gov. Bruce Rauner’s office, who was the honored guest at Arnstein's Reception to Celebrate Diversity in the Law event for law students in April. The Pipeline Program helped arrange for one of the firm's 2015 summer associates, Carrera Thibodeaux, to work at Arnstein for six weeks. Ms. Thibodeaux is also featured in the Crain’s article.
