Introducing The BBA's Summer Career Series Luncheons

This summer, the BBA will be organizing several lunches for attorneys looking to explore different career options. Typically limited to our Summer Judicial Interns, this year we are inviting everyone to get the inside scoop by joining us for our Summer Career Series!

The first of these career development lunches took place on Thursday, June 5 at the BBA. This first lunch focused on Prosecution and Defense. Christina Miller, Chief of District Courts and Community Prosecutions for the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office, and Committee for Public Counsel Services Supervising Attorney Lisa Medeiros, who oversees public defenders in the Roxbury, Dorchester, and West Roxbury District Courts, served as insiders for an informative, lighthearded discussion.

In addition to learning about the paths that led them to their respective careers, those assembled were also able to watch Lisa and Christina interact. Impressed by the air of professionalism and civility between the two "adversaries," BU Law student Tyler Patterson reflected that both Christina and Lisa "stressed how important it is for lawyers to be collegial and be able to maintain a professional relationship no matter the disposition of their clients." New England Law | Boston student Timothy J. Arnold said that having the opportunity to hear from Christina and Lisa "added a human element to the sometimes “behind the curtain” criminal system."
