For law firms and law offices -- both private and public sector -- the Summer Jobs Program represents an opportunity to hire a Boston public high school student for 8 weeks of employment. Conducted in partnership with the Boston Private Industry Council, the program allows Boston Public School students to learn about the legal profession through on-the-job experience, and aims to increase diversity and inclusion in Boston’s legal community. Over the past 19 years, the BBA has introduced over 385 young adults to the legal profession.

We are calling on firms to make a pledge now to participate in the 2013 Summer Jobs Program. 

To hire a student, or for more information on the program, please contact Katie D'Angelo, Public Service Programs Coordinator at 617-778-1914 or kdangelo@bostonbar.org.

This program is funded in part by the Austin Jones Fund and the M. Ellen Carpenter Fund of the Boston Bar Foundation.
