To Whom It May Concern:
Please consider this application for the Pro Se Staff Attorney position, Announcement
# PSA-11/--. I graduated from Northeastern University School of Law this past May. Through
Northeastern’s Cooperative Legal Education Program, I gained significant exposure to a broad range
of legal issues. I am interested in this position because one of my internships was with U.S. District
Court Judge Patti Saris. It was a particularly challenging and rewarding experience where I enhanced
my skills and gained valuable insight into the judicial process. During that internship I had the
experience of preparing for a maritime pro se case being tried before the judge. I had the opportunity
to consult with the Pro Se Staff Attorney who was extremely helpful and I learned what an
important service the office provides to the public.
My other legal internships were with the Office of the General Counsel at Boston University, Dwyer
& Collora, and the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office Fair Labor & Business Division. All of
these experiences were opportunities for me to refine my research, writing and advocacy skills. My
internship evaluations show my ability to work independently, as well as part of a team, and my
thoughtful approach to varied issues.
In addition to the legal training and law-related work experience, I possess a Masters of Science in
Public Policy and have over ten years of varied professional work experience. I am confident that my
legal training and work experience combined with my internship experiences will enable me to be an
effective contributor to your busy office.
My resume is attached for your review. I would be happy to provide you with any additional
materials that you require. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Very truly yours,
