MBA Leadership Academy
The Massachusetts Bar Association believes that exceptional
leaders are essential to the improvement of our profession.
However, there are few opportunities to train young attorneys on
how to best lead firms and organizations. Therefore, the MBA
recognizes its obligation as a statewide bar association to develop
leaders who will work diligently toward the improvement of our
profession and our society. In that regard, the MBA's Leadership
Academy will select, educate, and mentor those who demonstrate
leadership potential and attributes, and who will dedicate
themselves towards these goals. Click here for MBA Leadership Academy FAQs.
After successful completion of the academy's curriculum of
educational programming, class projects and mentoring, MBA
Leadership Academy graduates will be better prepared to assume
leadership roles at the bar, in their firms or organizations, and
