Nope. That info isn't public.
Come on people, we're better than this. http://www.nalpdirectory.com/
then select these options from the different option menus:
select F for Law Firm
select your city: narrow down which market you want
organizations that hire: scroll down and select 1Ls from the menu options
if you're really hardcore, you don't select ANYTHING for "organizations that hire"
go through all the firms and see which have "TBD" in their 1L summer hiring box. That means firms haven't considered it. Fewer 1Ls will apply because they are less likely to find it. I applied to those and I believe I got a few callbacks out of 'em.
but you'll see there are a shitload of diversity scholarships/fellowships that you're going to hear about through your career services/SEO/BLSA/NALSA/LALSA/ETC mailing lists/diversity bar orgs, etc. Typically these give you an SA and some scholarship money.
