Internship program offers opportunity for law students and sections

The MBA is looking for a few good interns.
For the first time in its history, the MBA has opened as many as six student-intern positions to provide support for the association’s specialized sections of the law. The internships are available for February through mid-May.

The interns will be assigned to one or more of the MBA's 16 sections, which carry out much of the association's work. Annually, sections typically develop more than 100 education programs; provide content for Section Review, a comprehensive magazine published three times per year; and participate in the development of other legal publications and special projects. The sections also monitor and develop legislation and propose legislative positions regarding Massachusetts law to the House of Delegates, the policy-making body of the association.
As the majority of the MBA's 18,000 members belong to at least one section, an internship is an ideal opportunity for prospective lawyers to associate with practicing attorneys and other members of the bar.
Intern responsibilities will include supporting one or more section chairs, conducting research projects as needed and attending section meetings.
MBA internships are open to second- or third-year law students for approximately 10 hours per week. Each intern will receive a stipend of $1,500.
Qualified candidates should send a resume and letter of interest no later than Jan. 10 to: Human Resources, MBA, 20 West Street, Boston, MA 02111. Applications also may be sent by e-mail to [e-mail owens], or by fax to 617-542-7947.
