Looking for an Internship Next Semester? Apply now for Spring Judicial Internship Program

Students looking to add another layer to their law school experience next semester should look no further than the BBA’s Judicial Internship Program. The program is an unpaid, non-credit internship where law students work directly with a judge, observe courtroom proceedings and enhance their legal research and writing skills. In addition, interns are invited to engage in professional development seminars and meetings held at the BBA. Participating courts include Boston Municipal Court, District Courts, Probate & Family Court & the US Bankruptcy Court.

Don’t just take it from us. Heather Sit, a 2L at New England Law | Boston and alum of the Judicial Internship program, had this to say:

“My everyday experiences talking with the judges at the conclusion of the various trials and hearings I saw over the summer were fascinating. I felt incredibly lucky to see the humanity and keen insight each of the judges I worked with brought to their decision-making. In class, it’s easy to get caught up in the technical legal issues because of the appellate cases we read, but working with the Roxbury court judges this summer really brought together the legal aspects with their practical, real-life impacts.”
