MBF announces 2012 Legal Intern Fellowship Award recipients

The MBF Trustees proudly announce the award recipients of the 2012 MBF Legal Intern Fellowship Program (LIFP).  This year, the program will provide three exemplary law students with a stipend of $6,000 each for a full-time, summer internship at a Massachusetts organization providing civil legal services to the poor.

The MBF's Legal Intern Fellowship Program has two concurrent goals: to give talented students the experience and encouragement they need to pursue careers in the public interest law sector and to provide legal aid organizations with much-needed additional staff capacity for the summer. These awards are supported by generous contributions to the MBF from lawyers and judges statewide.

This year's award recipients are:

Julia Hall

Boston University School of Law
AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts: Legal Services to HIV+ and At-Risk Communities
(Supported by the MBF Fellows Fund)

Rachel Smit

Boston University School of Law
Greater Boston Legal Services: Employment Law Unit
(Supported by the MBF Fellows Fund)

Kristen Wekony

Harvard Legal Aid Bureau: Housing Law Practice
