"Year Up interns have made us a better firm; they have given us insight into new ways of thinking that enhance our client services every single day. We trust that we have been able to provide them with tools for the future and expect great things to come." 

Bilzin Sumberg strives for diversity in the legal industry. The firm's Diversity Committee is constantly working to improve the culture of inclusion by providing education to promote understanding and inclusion, and perpetuating a welcoming work environment.
