The Boston Bar Association Summer Jobs Program, established in 1993, will be
able to offer more jobs this summer than at any time in its 17 year history -
thanks to the generosity and support of law firms and law offices committed to
opening careers in the legal profession to a diverse group of young people from
Boston's neighborhoods, and also the Boston Bar Foundation's Austin Jones and M.
Ellen Carpenter Funds.
