Gardner Skelton is proud to participate in the Charlotte Legal Diversity Clerkship (CLDC) program for the second year. Established in 2006, the CLDC program operates with one basic goal: to improve diversity in the Mecklenburg County Bar by attracting top first-year law students with diverse backgrounds to Charlotte through corporate and law firm summer internships. We are excited to welcome this year’s CLDC summer law clerk, Itané Coleman, to our team.
Itané is from Charlotte, NC. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro summa cum laude, with a bachelor’s degree in political science and African American studies. After undergrad, she took two years off before enrolling in law school. During that time, Itané served as a 7th grade social studies teacher with Teach for America, in a Title I school. She recently completed her first year at the Wake Forest University School of Law. Some of her favorite hobbies include working out, cooking, painting, and spending time with her cat, Nala.
