The BBA Summer Jobs students bid their law offices goodbye on the final day of their eight week internships. Beyond the Billable wanted to take this opportunity to thank the employers who demonstrated their commitment to the Boston community and its future by hiring a Boston high school student.
These employers not only provided the students with a means to earn a paycheck, but they offered the students opportunities to develop professional skills and exposed the students to the legal field. If you saw this Boston Globe article last week, you know the Mayor fell short of his goal of 12,000 jobs for Boston youth. The Boston legal community should be proud that we increased our support for Boston teens by funding 64 positions this summer—up from 58 positions last year. That said, it’s clear that more can be done to support our youth and we hope the Boston legal community will continue to step up next year and provide even more summer jobs.
