Juvenile Court Bench-Bar forums planned statewide

A series of regional Juvenile Court Bench-Bar meetings to address regional and statewide issues facing judges and practitioners in the Juvenile Court have been scheduled over the next several months.

The forums were announced by the Juvenile and Child Welfare 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 Boston.

MBA members who would like specific issues addressed should e-mail Juvenile and Child Welfare Section Chair Peter A. Hahn at [e-mail peter] or MBA section coordinator Jean Stevens at [e-mail jstevens] as soon as possible.
