May 31st marks the deadline to sign up to join the
growing lists of firms and legal departments who have committed to hiring a
Summer Jobs student. If your firm hasn’t already signed on to the program,
here are a few reasons why it should:
1. This year’s program has set a
record, offering 57 students positions at law firms and departments across
2. The pool of accepted students is exceptionally diverse.
Students from this year’s program were born in El Salvador, Guinea, Haiti,
Rwanda and the Dominican Republic.
3. Students get a once in a lifetime
opportunity to gain professional experience and exposure to the legal
profession. This job may influence the next generation to attend law
4. You can finally catch up on all the data entry, filing,
photocopying and other administrative duties on your to-do list.
if you are at a smaller firm who doesn’t need the work, you can support a
student by sponsoring one through the Boston Bar Foundation. These students will
be placed in legal nonprofit organizations or government agencies who cannot
afford to pay an intern for the summer.

Summer Jobs Program, please contact Katie D'Angelo at firstname.lastname@example.org
