Create Little Rock’s annual Land in the Rock summer program is designed to entertain interns, law clerks, and medical residents who are here for the summer and demonstrate to them what Little Rock has to offer. These events are also for young professionals who have recently moved to Little Rock. Create Little Rock members are invited to all Land in the Rock events. Sign up for the program at the links below and check out the schedule of events. If you’re only here for the summer, just click the “intern/law clerk” button below.
