Summer Associate Research Program
The Summer Associates Research Program, a partnership between private law firms and ADL, provides law firm summer associates with the opportunity to engage in significant research on key civil rights issues of the day.

In particular, topics covered during the half-day training include both local and national hate crimes, hate symbols and ideology, extremists in prison, offender profiles and typologies, recruiting tactics of extremist groups, extremists’ use of the Internet, and criminal trends in the area.
