Meet the Ambassador: James Bor

Name: James BorJames Bor

Year: 2L (Class of 2017)

Undergraduate institution: Cornell University, Class of 2012, graduated cum laude

Experiences between college and law school: Teach For America, 2012 Mississippi Delta Corps Member

Activities at BC Law (besides being an Ambassador):

  • Law Students Association
  • Women’s Law Center

Favorite class: Evidence with Professor Cassidy. I enjoy rule-based classes that also consider policy implications, and the course reaffirmed my interest in litigation. Professor Cassidy cares tremendously about students and their development, and he leverages his incredible legal and professional accomplishments to make our experiences in law school the very best.

Summer employment:
  • Summer Associate, WilmerHale (2L summer)
  • Rappaport Fellow, U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Massachusetts (1L summer)

What do you hope to do after graduation? I hope to work in private practice or clerk for a judge.

Why law school? I wanted to learn about how the legal system works and how the law interfaces with public policy.

Why BC Law? The mission of the Law School is to train lawyers who live good lives and this is reflected in the purposeful opportunities available to students whether through classes, experiential learning, or initiatives like the Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy. The BC network is terrific for anyone considering a legal career in Boston or the Northeast.

What most surprised you about BC Law when you got here? The whole school (professors, classmates, Career Services, administration) actively roots for you and wants you to succeed.

Boston College Law Ambassadors is a newly launched program designed to enhance the on-campus experience for every prospective student who visits BC Law. The Ambassadors are thirty students who lead campus tours, help out at Admitted Students Day, and serve as a resource for applicants and admitted students who are considering enrolling at BC Law.

In support of this role, each Ambassador will be profiled on the Impact blog over the course of the school year. If you are a prospective student and notice something about any of our Ambassadors that you’d like to discuss with him or her – whether it’s a shared alma mater, an interesting extracurricular, or an appealing summer job – do not hesitate to reach out. After all, that’s what we’re here for!
