Section Council of the Massachusetts Bar Association, which is
sponsoring them in conjunction with the Administrative Office of
the Juvenile Court.
There are tentative plans to hold five meetings, from November
through June, in Springfield, Andover, Brockton, Worcester and
Boston. Juvenile Court Chief Justice Michael F. Edgerton is
scheduled to deliver the keynote speech at the program in
