Summer position: Intern with the Boston Red Sox
As a transfer student, Sheila Meagher ‘16 initially wondered how she would fit into the BC Law community. It didn’t take long for her to feel right at home. Meagher had always been interested in sports and entertainment law, but while many job interviews for summer internships happen in the fall, Meagher found that it was much more common for sports internship interviews to take place in the spring. So while many of her new classmates were juggling their interviews, she took full advantage of the various opportunities BC Law provided, participating in mock interviews and networking with BC Law alumni in the sports industry.
“Once the spring semester came, I became a very frequent guest in [Senior Career Counselor] Dorothy Commons’s office,” Meagher says. “Dorothy assisted me throughout the initial application and interview process until I received the offer from the Red Sox in April…It became very clear to me throughout the year how much pride BC Law takes in every one of their students and their genuine desire to see each of us succeed.”
Once she started with the Red Sox Legal Department during the summer, Meagher found that BC Law had prepared her well. “I was confident in my research and writing skills, as well as my ability to take on the variety of projects assigned to me throughout the 10 week internship,” she says. “It really was a dream opportunity for me.”
