Boston American Inn of Court honors MBF

The Massachusetts Bar Foundation, the philanthropic partner of the MBA, was honored for outstanding service to the administration of justice by the Boston American Inn of Court at its June 9 Annual Awards Dinner in Boston.

The Inn, whose co-presidents are District Court Justice Hon. Barbara Savitt Pearson and Harvey Weiner of Peabody & Arnold in Boston, was founded in 1990 as Massachusetts' first Inn of Court and brings together attorneys, judges, legal educators and law students for the open exchange of ideas and to promote civility, excellence and professionalism in the profession.

MBF President Joseph P.J. Vrabel accepted the award on behalf of the foundation and presented a video highlighting the mission and work of the MBF.

"The foundation is the legal community's best kept secret, providing millions of dollars for legal aid programs for the poor," said Weiner. "It is the state's premier legal charity and every lawyer should know about it and consider supporting it."
