Section council internships for law students
Each year, the MBA offers four to six internships, which provide an ideal opportunity for law students to work with practicing attorneys. These interns provide support to the 15 section councils by attending meetings, conducting research for educational programs, preparing articles for the MBA's Section Review and tracking and analyzing legislative positions for the sections.

The internship is offered to second- and third-year law students, who work at the association 10 hours a week from September through May. These interns are drawn from law schools around the commonwealth, with four or five working in the Boston office and one intern based in the MBA's Springfield office. The interns this year are: Marcy Buckner, Jason Chan, Michal Haimov, Jason Peterson and Shannon Ryman. Ryman is in her second year as an MBA intern.
