Boston Bar Association Judicial Internship Announces Partnership with Probate and Family Court

Monday, February 04, 2013
The Diversity & Inclusion Section’s Judicial Internship Program is now partnering with the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court to place diverse Boston area law students in internships in the courts.

The program is now accepting applications for internships in the Boston Municipal Court, Massachusetts State District Court, as well as the Probate and Family Court for Summer 2013. This unpaid, non-credit* internship provides students the opportunity to work directly with a judge, observe courtroom proceedings and enhance their legal research and writing skills. The BBA’s Diversity & Inclusion Section’s Pipeline and Recruitment Committee works to connect the judges with potential interns. 

Students who have completed their first year of law school and are able to work at least 15 hours per week will be considered. Diverse students are strongly encouraged to apply. A flexible schedule is available to accommodate other commitments. 

Interested students should complete the application and submit it along with a cover letter, resume, and a letter of recommendation from a law school professor. Enrollment is limited so early applications are strongly encouraged. Applications will be collected on a rolling basis with priority placement given to early applicants. The application deadline is March 1, 2013. 
Interested students should send completed applications to Susan Helm atshelm@bostonbar.org

*Students may be able to obtain credit from their law school for participation in the program on a case by case basis.
