With this option, we collect and review the applicants and forward them to you on a date certain with our feedback based on your specific hiring criteria. You then invite select students to your office for interviews/phone screenings, or we will coordinate interviews for you on campus.  Visit our SAGE site or e-mail law.career@bc.edu for more information.

Government and Public Interest Programs

Join the Government/Public Interest Job Fairs. With the Massachusetts Law School Consortium, we sponsor two government/public interest recruitment programs in October and January. Our students also participate in the Equal Justice Works job fair in Greater DC in the early fall.

 

Resident Attorney Program

Anti-Discrimination

As recognized by the faculty, Boston College Law School does not discriminate against any person on the basis of the identities referenced in our statement of diversity and inclusion in admission to, access to, treatment in, or employment in its programs and activities. Boston College Law School has instituted policies and procedures to ensure a safe and non-discriminatory environment and to meet legal requirements, including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. All employers using the facilities and services of the career services offices must comply with these policies and procedures. Boston College Law School makes one exception to this policy. Under threat of loss of funding to the University resulting from the Solomon Amendment, the application of our anti-discrimination policy is suspended for military recruiters. This exception to our policy does not reflect our acceptance of or agreement with discriminatory hiring policies.

We welcome employers to participate in our 100+ career-related programs each year. Contact us to discuss upcoming opportunities.
