Did you know that the MBA recently created two new sections?
Check out the new Juvenile and Child Welfare Section and Immigration Law Section
If your area of practice is Juvenile and Child Welfare Law or Immigration Law, or if you are thinking about expanding your practice, contact MBA Member Services at (617) 338-0530 and ask about adding the section of your choice in your membership package.
Immigration Law Section
2008-09 co-chairs: Marc Freiberger and Roy Watson
The Immigration Law Section aims to create a focal point for its members to access information relevant to immigration issues and questions. The section will provide an opportunity to network with other specialized practitioners to respond to the needs of a growing client base in the immigration field, and also to collaborate with other existing sections dealing with immigration law issues. The section hopes to address concerns and provide education for both practicing immigration attorneys and attorneys practicing in other areas who are only rarely confronted with immigration issues.
Juvenile and Child Welfare Section
2008-09 co-chairs: Michael Donnelly and Wendy Wolf
The Juvenile and Child Welfare Section will enable practitioners who represent clients in abuse and neglect, delinquency, youthful offender and status offender cases to meet for the first time in one forum and address the variety of issues that affect children and families. The section will also provide opportunities to work on projects involving proposed and current legislation, develop and present CLE programs, host open section meetings and publish articles.
Section councils are being formed for these new sections and if you are interested in appointment as a member of the section council, contact MBA Sections Administrator Jean Stevens via e-mail, as soon as possible for consideration.
