Pacific Gas and Electric Company Seeks Applicants
For Its 2012 Fall Diversity Pipeline Externship Program
We thrive on diversity at Pacific Gas and Electric Company and strive to cultivate a workplace where inclusion, acceptance and mutual respect are standard. We are also committed to increasing the diversity of attorneys practicing energy law. With this commitment in mind, PG&E’s Law Department established its Diversity Pipeline Program. This program provides two (2) second year law students with an opportunity to experience PG&E’s multifaceted legal practice.
During the twelve-week to fifteen-week program at PG&E's San Francisco office, students will complete a variety of work assignments in multiple practice areas including: litigation, commercial and regulatory. Only students who will receive academic credit for their participation in the program should apply. PG&E will not provide monetary compensation.
Selection criteria include academic excellence, personal or professional achievement in overcoming hardship, and a demonstrated commitment to diversity. Applicants are responsible for assuring that their application is timely, accurate, and complete.
Applications are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 22, 2012 and must include all of the following:
• Documentation listing the criteria for your receipt of academic credit and the name and contact information for the law school administrators with whom PG&E will establish the supervisory process.
• First-year course writing sample (limited to ten (10) pages)
• Personal statement addressing your personal or professional achievement in overcoming diversity and a demonstrated commitment to diversity (limited to three (3) pages)
• First-year, first semester grades
Please send applications by email to LawPipelineResumes@pge.com.
The program begins on Monday, August 20th and concludes on Friday, November 16th, subject to adjustment based on your law school’s externship program requirements. PG&E will consider applicants seeking full-time or part-time positions in accordance with their externship program requirements. We recommend that you commit at least 20 hours per week in order to receive a more enriching learning and networking experience.
If you are selected as a finalist, you will be asked to participate in an in-person interview at PG&E’s general office in San Francisco on a mutually convenient time and date between March 28th and April 3rd.
