Energy Law in the Northeast

Postby legaleagle16 » Mon Oct 28, 2013 10:35 pm

BC 1L here, looking for information about summer opportunities in energy law in the northeast, specifically Boston. What options are there in corporations in-house counsel offices, public utilities, government, and non-profits? Are firms a viable option for 1Ls interested in energy? Any good people or groups to know?

Thanks!

There should be an energy law course at BC taught by a couple adjuncts, maybe you could reach out to them and see what they suggest?

I think energy law is one of those very specialized areas with practically its own language. Anything you can do to get experience with that language and specialty will help. I'm not sure whether utilities and such have entry-level programs, but I don't think it would hurt you to try and get some private firm experience under your belt first and try to lateral after that (especially through a client). Brown Rudnick and Foley Hoag strike me as having good energy programs. I'm not familiar with the utilities in Boston, but in terms of government, I know the Mass AG's office has an energy program. It may be one place you could do a 1L internship at. The big environmental nonprofit in New England is the Conservation Law Foundation, but I'm not sure how energy-focused it is. Whatever you do as your 1L internship, I would try and go someplace you might like to work at in the future, so you can build those connections.
