Mark your calendars: Court Advocacy Day set for March 19

Court and bar leadership ask attorneys to push for adequate court funding

The Massachusetts Bar Association invites you to participate in Court Advocacy Day on Monday, March 19 at the Grand Staircase inside the Statehouse. Beginning at 11 a.m., the event will help reiterate the need for adequate funding to sustain the critical needs of the Massachusetts Court System. The event will open with a brief speaking program, after which attendees will be encouraged to meet with their local legislators.

An effort of the MBA and Boston Bar Association along with county and specialty bars, the event complements the MBA's ongoing awareness campaign on this topic.

"I encourage all bar members and the greater legal community to support this cause in urging our legislators to approve necessary funding for our courts," MBA President Richard P. Campbell said.

The event will include speaking remarks from:

  • Supreme Judicial Court Chief Justice Roderick L. Ireland;
  • Chief Justice for Administration and Management Robert A. Mulligan;
  • MBA President Richard P. Campbell; and
  • Boston Bar Association President Lisa Goodheart.
The MBA and BBA organized a similar grass-roots lobbying effort in 2009.
