Future of Public Service Looks Bright: MBF Awards Grants for Law Student Internships

The MBF Trustees proudly announce the award recipients of the 2014 MBF Legal Intern Fellowship Program (LIFP).  This year, the program will provide three 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.
