Job Shadow Day seeking volunteers

The MBA is seeking volunteers for its annual Job Shadow Day to provide students with an up-close view of the legal system at work.

The MBA needs attorneys who are interested in having a student shadow them and will be in Boston, Springfield or Worcester on Thursday, Feb. 2, 2006.

Last year, 29 teenagers from area Boys and Girls Clubs participated.

Job Shadow Day's goal is broadening the students' understanding of the law, introducing them to the variety of careers available in the legal field and fostering their respect for the legal system.

Attorneys from all areas of law are welcome to participate. During the day, attorneys are encouraged to visit a courthouse and introduce the teens to legal professionals in and out of their offices.

To volunteer, call (617) 338-0695 or e-mail [e-mail communityservices].
