Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP recently finished its fifth academic year partnering with Providence Cristo Rey High School’s Corporate Work Study Program. The program offers a combination of college preparatory classes and external job opportunities to students. Braydon Jefferson and Omar Ramirez were the two students chosen to participate in the work study program at Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP for the 2011-2012 school year.
