In a few weeks John Feroleto, Esq and his wife, the Honorable Paula Feroleto will be recognized by the City of Buffalo for launching Buffalo’s law intern program.
2009 marked the first year of the Buffalo law intern program which matches attorneys with inner city youth. The 16 and 17 year olds are given an opportunity to work in downtown Buffalo law firms in paid internships.
The goal is to expose city youth to office settings, connect them to the legal system and allow them to see not only their own tremendous personal potential, but also possible future careers in the legal system.
The Feroleto’s look forward to the continued expansion of this budding program and hope to have even more students involved next summer. Autumn Green from Holy Angels Academy was a summer 2009 intern and she stated that the experience opened her eyes to areas of law she might like to pursue in college.
