Advance your career with this free educational benefit
Effective September 1, 2014, the Massachusetts Bar Association
offers free educational programs to MBA members, excluding
conferences and the Practicing with Professionalism course. Now MBA
members can stay on top of the law, advance their careers and
enhance their practices -- all at no extra cost.
Taking advantage of free CLE is easy. Course offerings
take place at venues throughout the state, and many can be accessed
remotely through MBA On Demand. This free member benefit applies
both to in-person and On Demand CLE programs. Members also
receive free access to the entire recorded On Demand
library. We are in the process of building the catalog of programs
for the 2014-15 year. Check the website regularly -- new courses
are added all the time.
The MBA's educational programs cater to new, experienced and
transitioning attorneys across a wide range of practices. Each
year, the MBA offers courses covering recent case law, new
legislation, emerging legal trends, new rules of practice and
procedure, and issues of law practice management that will benefit
attorneys and their practice. Courses are taught by some of the
most experienced attorneys in the commonwealth, and most programs
include written materials and qualify for three hours of CLE
