New England Law | Boston creates summer program to place students with employers

New England Law | Boston will fund fellowship positions for students this summer. Selected students will receive stipends from the law school for ten-week positions. 

“These fellowships are part of our continuing effort at New England Law to help students become as prepared as possible for the practice of law,” said Dean John O’Brien. “We are committed to helping our students gain valuable experience that will assist them in today’s tight job market. “

The school’s Center for Business Law and the Center for Law and Social Responsibility will administer the program. Faculty members with each center have identified potential outside partners, and students may also identify and submit their own placements for approval.

The Center for Business Law will place students at private firms, corporate legal offices, and government agencies, handling a wide range of legal fields, including real estate, intellectual property, health law, medical malpractice, insurance defense, and many other areas.

The Center for Law and Social Responsibility placements will offer law students the opportunity to work with practitioners with a public interest focus. The program features pre-internship orientation sessions and seminars through the summer and fall.

After completing their fellowships, summer fellows will be expected to mentor future students in the program in the following academic year.
