MBF Grants $24,000 to Law Students for Public Interest Internships

The MBF Trustees proudly announce that four exceptional law students were recently selected to receive a stipend of $6,000 each for their unpaid summer internships at non-profit legal aid organizations in Massachusetts.

The grants are provided through the MBF’s Legal Intern Fellowship Program (LIFP), which is funded by the MBF Fellows Fund and the Smith Family Fund and has two concurrent goals: to give talented students the experience and encouragement they need to continue in the public interest law sector and to provide legal aid organizations with much-needed additional staff capacity for the summer. 

“Once again, the LIFP applicants exhibited exceptional talent and represented diverse backgrounds,” said LIFP Committee Chair Angela McConney Scheepers. “The Mass Bar Foundation is thrilled with this year’s awardees, and look forward to following their legal careers.”
