Resume Collection

Get more from your job posting by requesting a resume collection. 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 respectively. Our students also participate in the Equal Justice Works job fair in Greater DC in the early fall.

 

Resident Attorney Program

Hire a post-grad for one year. Private sector employers can hire a recent Boston College Law School graduate full-time for a one year contract at high-end fellowship pay. BC Law promotes the opportunity to interested students and works closely with you on the recruitment process. Whether you are an in-house legal department, or a small firm that does not typically hire directly out of law school, this program may be for you.  More information about the Resident Attorney Program.

 

Clerkships

Work with us to find your clerk or judicial intern. We offer our students a biweekly clerkship newsletter in which we publicize clerkship and judicial internship opportunities and provide other resources. Judges may participate in any of the recruitment programs listed above or email your opening to law.career@bc.edu and our clerkship advisor Christopher Teague, Senior Associate Director, Career Services at Teaguech@bc.edu.  

 

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