Led by the Denver Diversity Committee chairs, partners Ana Gutiérrez and Russell Hedman, attendees will participate in mock interviews, practice-specific breakout groups with Hogan Lovells lawyers, and a Q&A session with distinguished leaders from across the legal industry. Students will receive invaluable insights from government, in-house, and private practice professionals.

The Practical Skills Program hosts diverse law students from the University of Denver, University of Colorado, and University of Wyoming who will have completed one year of law school (or a part-time program equivalent) by the summer of 2023. Several attendees will be applying for a clerk position with the Summer Diversity Clerkship Program managed by the Colorado Pledge to Diversity Legal Group.
