Summer Internship Program


Summer Internship Program

Every year, the BLG places undergraduate college students of color at several of its member law firms for a 10-week paid summer internship. This pipeline program is full of interactive programs designed by the BLG to expose college students to the legal profession. Along with working at prestigious law firms, the BLG summer interns go on guided tours of law schools in the Boston region, participate in professional and etiquette development workshops, visit local and federal courts, participate in a mock trial, and are involved in many more opportunities to interact with Boston’s legal community. Also, students receive an attorney mentor for the duration of the internship.

 

 

2021 Virtual Summer Series

 

The Boston Lawyers Group announces its 21st Annual Summer Internship Program for College Students of Color

 Many of these students are contemplating law school; they have taken the LSATs to pursue a legal career in some cases. Students who participate in the BLG Summer Internship Program attend the nation’s finest colleges and universities, often with full scholarships that recognize their leadership ability and academic records. Students in summer’s past have come from organizations such as The Posse Foundation and Bottom Line, two premier organizations focusing on student professional development.

This year, in the light of precautions taken due to Covid-19, the BLG will be offering a 10-week Virtual Summer Series in place of our standard Summer Internship program. The series will include virtual events with industry leaders focused on advancing skills that will acclimate undergraduate students in the process of applying to law school, the day to day life of senior and junior associates, legal/LSAT writing workshops, virtual networking events, and much more.

 

The interested applicant must:

 

  • Have completed their undergraduate freshman year and be entering their sophomore, junior or senior year at an accredited college or university.
