Applications for the BBA Diversity & Inclusion Summer Fellowship are Now Open!

The BBA is thrilled to announce that applications are now open for our 2020 Diversity & Inclusion Summer Fellowship. We are seeking law students who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion within the legal profession, and who will have completed their 1L or 2L year by the summer of 2020. Fellowships offer an opportunity for substantive work in a public interest law office, including supervision, skill development, and building one’s professional network. In addition to gaining work experience, Fellows attend professional development programming at the BBA and receive a mentor through the BBA’s Diversity & Inclusion section. The program aims to ensure that law students from all backgrounds can gain experience in public interest law. Those interested in applying for the program can do so at this link.

In Summer 2020, three Fellowship positions will be available: The Office of the Massachusetts Attorney General, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts, and the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination. Applications to this program will be due back to the BBA on January 16, 2020. Each host office will select a fellow to participate. All Fellows will receive a stipend of $5,000 for the summer. Please see each application for more details. You can read about the experiences of last year’s Fellows here.

Funding for this program is made possible by the Boston Bar Foundation. Thank you to Pierce Atwood for their sponsorship of the Diversity & Inclusion Summer Fellowship Program.
