Litigation associate Michael A. Kippins has been selected to join the Boston Bar Association’s Public Interest Leadership Program (PILP) Class of 2017-2018. The BBA created PILP in 2003 to promote civic engagement among young attorneys, who are selected for the program based on their commitment to pro bono and public service work as well as their history of organizing bar action. Participants in the program meet with local leaders to learn about challenges facing Boston and its surrounding communities. Towards the end of the 14-month program, participants use what they have learned to complete projects aimed at resolving specific community issues. Kippins stated his enthusiasm to take part in the program, saying: “I am very excited to be a member of the Boston Bar Association’s 14th Public Interest Leadership Program class. PILP provides a great opportunity to engage in public service through community leadership, and I look forward to working with the other members to confront the challenges faced by our community.” Read about all the members of this year’s PILP class here.
