Sponsored by the BBA, this program will feature a panel of speakers from Ropes and Gray, the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office and Boston University. Panelists will advise law students on how to maximize their summer experience by applying the legal skills they have gained in law school to their summer employment, and how to gain new practical skills on the job. The panel will focus on all types of legal employment, including large firms, small firms, government, non-profit, etc., and focus on the best way to maximize their experience this summer and contribute meaningfully to their employer.

We hope you have a great experience this summer and return to school feeling accomplished and confident in the skills you acquired during your internship!
