MBF Fellows Fund in Action

2012 MBF Legal InternsSummer may feel like a long time ago, but the experiences of the Massachusetts Bar Foundation's 2012 Legal Intern Fellows remain fresh. Julia Hall, Rachel Smit and Kristen Wekony spent their summers interning at legal services organizations, providing direct legal services to vulnerable and indigent clients. The MBF is so grateful for their work and hope you will enjoy reading about their experiences.

The MBF thanks its Fellows, and the Smith Family Fund, whose contributions funded these opportunities.

MBF seeks new Fellows

MBF BertscheThe MBF believes you will find your foundation involvement as rewarding as the current Fellows do.

"Frankly, for every hour or dollar I've put into the [MBF grant review] process, I've gotten far more back in terms of experience, satisfaction, and an appreciation for the work that needs to be done to fulfill the promise of justice."

-- Robert A. Bertsche of Prince, Lobel & Tye LLP
