PILP Info Session Draws Future Leaders

Emerging legal leaders gathered at the BBA last to learn about applying for PILP.

Emerging legal leaders gathered at the BBA last week to learn more about PILP and the application process.

Last Thursday, more than two dozen hopeful applicants for the BBA’s Public Interest Leadership Program (PILP) attended an information session at 16 Beacon Street, where they heard from four successful PILP alumni. The panelists offered insight into the application process, their personal PILP experience, and how they’ve remained involved at the BBA after completing the program.

Panelists included:

  • Moderator, Jen Doran – Partner, Hinckley Allen, PILP 06-07
  • Eric Haskell – Assistant District Attorney, Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, PILP 12-13
  • Katherine Schulte – Staff Attorney, Casa Myrna Vasquez, PILP 13-14
  • Daniel Routh – Associate, Ropes & Gray LLP, PILP 12-13

Attendees left the information session with  four key PILP takeaways:

  1. PILP is one of the most valuable tools for networking and meeting people in the profession.
  2. Members of PILP class are exposed to and integrated into BBA leadership.
  3. PILP combines leadership and professional development with service to the community.
  4. Program participants meet leaders within the legal community and greater Boston community.

The BBA will be accepting applications to PILP through Friday, February 13th for the class beginning in May 2015. More information on PILP and the application process is available here. Please email Galen Byrne, Member Relationship Coordinator, at gbyrne@bostonbar.org with any questions on PILP.
