Support the future of public interest law

Thursday, Dec. 16, 2021

LIFP Cover Light BlueSince 1996, the Massachusetts Bar Foundation’s Legal Intern Fellowship Program has given 129 talented law students the experience necessary to pursue careers in public interest law while also providing legal aid organizations with much-needed additional staff capacity.

In 2021, the MBF was able to award stipends to five law students who interned at nonprofit organizations providing civil legal services to low-income clients in Massachusetts. These awards were supported by generous contributions from MBF donors and the Smith Family Fund.

Please consider making a donation this holiday season to support this program, as well as other critical access to justice initiatives funded by the MBF. To donate, visit
