MBF announces 2013 Legal Intern Fellowship award recipients

Issue July 2013

The Massachusetts Bar Foundation Trustees proudly announce the award recipients of the 2013 MBF Legal Intern Fellowship Program (LIFP). This year, the program will provide three exemplary law students with a stipend of $6,000 each for a full-time, summer internship at a Massachusetts non-profit organization providing civil legal services to the poor.

The MBF's Legal Intern Fellowship Program has two concurrent goals: to give talented students the experience and encouragement they need to pursue careers in the public interest law sector and to provide legal aid organizations with much-needed additional staff capacity for the summer. These awards are supported by generous contributions to the MBF from lawyers and judges statewide.

This year's award recipients are:

Catherine Ady-Bell

Western New England University School of Law
Community Legal Aid: Springfield Housing Unit

(Supported by MBF Fellows Fund)

Raymond Burke

Boston College Law School
Justice at Work

(Supported by MBF Fellows Fund)

Colleen Duggan
