MBF announces 2018 Legal Intern Fellowship Award recipients

Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018

The Massachusetts Bar Foundation Board of Trustees proudly announces the award recipients of the 2018 MBF Legal Intern Fellowship Program. This year, the program provided four 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:
