Pyle Rome Ehrenberg PC

Law Firm
Boston, MA

This is the 2024 fellowship description for this mentor organization. This position has been filled.

Pyle Rome is a law firm that exclusively represents working people — labor unions and individual employees — and seeks vindication of workers’ rights in disputes with management. Our public- and private-sector labor union clients include federal, state and municipal workers, including firefighters and police officers, telephone and utility workers, health care and human service employees, retail food and commercial workers, steelworkers and other manufacturing employees, craft workers, and bus drivers.

We are the only union-side labor firm with multiple offices in New England, including offices in Eastern and Western Massachusetts and in Vermont. Our employment practice includes representation of workers denied fair wages, overtime pay, and health and pension benefits. We represent workers who have been discriminated against and who have suffered harassment in the workplace, as well as those facing family and medical leave issues and many other employment-related concerns. We are both personally and professionally committed to helping those who have experienced discrimination based on disability, race, age, sex or sexual orientation and those who have suffered sexual or racial harassment; family and medical leave problems; wrongful termination, and many other employment-related concerns. We do not represent employers of any kind.

We are seeking candidates who have completed two years of law school and have taken at least one course in labor law. Our goal is to expose the Peggy Browning Fellow to the various aspects of our union-side labor practice by engaging in research projects relating to ongoing cases and by assisting in drafting pleadings and briefs in active matters. As we believe students learn best by fully participating in cases, our goal is to bring the Fellow into the field as often as possible to help bring cases from preparation through presentation and beyond.

We anticipate that this fellowship will be primarily office-based, though some remote work may be possible. The stipend for this fellowship will be $1,000 per week (i.e., $10,000 total for the full ten-week fellowship). Students working in this firm typically work 40 hours per week.
