BP Summer Legal Internship Program

In the last two years the Illinois Minority Bar Associations have graciously assisted BP in distributing its Summer Legal Internship Program Application.  BP is proud to renew its summer intern program for 2007.  We are thrilled that this year the application for the 2007 Summer Legal Intern Program is available on-line for you to distribute to eligible law students.  The URL for the site is:


Username: SIP Applicant

The on-line brochure contains information about BP as a company, contacts, scholarship requirements and the application that is due in our offices on or before February 1, 2007. 

For your quick reference I have listed highlights of the 2007 BP Summer Legal Intern Program:

  • Summer intern positions available at BP's legal offices in Houston, Texas, La Palma, California and Warrenville, Illinois
  • Students who have completed only one year of law school are eligible
  • Students must demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion
  • Application to be received by February 1, 2007 and status of application will be known by March 1, 2007.
  • Competitive pay plus one-time scholarship to assist with legal education
  • Rotate summer intern among BP's various practice groups - generally working one or two weeks in a group

Please call me if you have any questions about the internship.  If you have any problems or technical questions concerning the website, please contact Robert Heinze at Robert.Heinze@bp.com.

Once again thank you for your valuable support.
