We hope you’ve enjoyed following along with the BBA Summer Jobs students this summer as they learned about legal careers and gained on-the-job experience. As you know, one of the hallmarks of the BBA Summer Jobs Program is the weekly enrichment seminars. This summer, students had the opportunity to participate in a mock City Council meeting at Boston City Council chambers, a “speed dating” session where they heard from lawyers from three different backgrounds, a trip to the John Adams Courthouse, and much more. However, these enrichment seminars would not be possible without the help of dedicated volunteers who lent their expertise to educate the students about the legal field, professional development, and financial literacy.

The BBA would like to thank the following volunteers for speaking with the Summer Jobs students:

Barbara Berenson, Supreme Judicial Court
Manisha Bhatt, Greater Boston Legal Services
Hon. Cynthia Cohen, Massachusetts Appeals Court
Christopher Condon, Murphy & King, Professional Corporation
Kathleen Cruickshank, Murphy & King, Professional Corporation
