In-House Counsel Fellowship Program

BU Law's In-House Counsel Fellowship Program gives corporations and not-for-profits the opportunity to hire recent BU Law graduates for one year to work in their legal departments.

Here’s how it works:

  • BU Law facilitates an internal search for candidates matching your (the employer’s) specific needs in terms of expertise and experience.
  • The employer hires the best-fit BU Law graduate for one year at a reasonable annual salary (comparable to a judicial law clerk).

The fine print:

  • The hiring decision remains solely at the discretion of the employer.
  • Your legal department will determine the nature and scope of the new attorney’s work while employed.
  • The employer will pay the annual salary of approximately $50,000 (or $40,000 for nonprofits).
  • There is no expectation that the attorney will continue with the employer beyond the one-year agreement.

Please contact James Kossuth, jkossuth@bu.edu, 617-358-4181 to get started or for more information.
