is Friday, March 5. For additional information, contact the MBF

The Massachusetts Bar Foundation is the commonwealth's premier

partner of the Massachusetts Bar Association, and is one of three
charitable entities in Massachusetts that distributes funds through
the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court's Interest on Lawyers'
Trust Accounts (IOLTA) Program. The Foundation represents the
commitment of the lawyers of Massachusetts to improve the
administration of justice, to promote understanding of the law, and
to ensure equal access to the legal system for all residents of the
commonwealth, particularly those most vulnerable.
