With the start date of the BBA Summer Jobs Program fast approaching, the students’ supervisors from the various law firms and offices gathered at 16 Beacon yesterday morning to prep for a great summer. With the help of Boston Private Industry Council Career Specialists Teresa Alleyne and Rose Delorme, attendees learned more about the variety of the students’ backgrounds (which we addressed in this post) and how to help high school students excel in their first professional job. Veteran Summer Jobs employers Matt McTygue (Edwards Wildman Palmer), Christina Miller (Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office), and Elaine Carmichael (DLA Piper) also presented, offering suggestions on potential projects and enrichment opportunities so employers can help students maximize their summer.

  • Learn to network by striving to collect 100 business cards from legal professionals throughout the summer.
  • Summarize cases and write legal memos.
  • Work with their employer to fill out the Common Application for college.

Don’t worry. We’ll be keeping our loyal readers updated on all of the exciting projects our students will be working on this summer.
