To the cheers of thousands of hockey fans, third-year law student Jill Apelgren performed the National Anthem at TD Banknorth Garden before a Boston Bruins-New York Islanders game on Jan. 24.

Apelgren, who is in the Family Law Clinic, studied voice at Berklee College of Music as an undergraduate.

Those in attendance included several Suffolk Law students and attorneys from Swiggart & Aggin LLC, where Apelgren is working this year.

The performance marked the first time Apelgren has publicly sung The Star Spangled Banner as a solo performer.

“It was a lot of fun, because I'm a huge hockey fan,” Apelgen said.
