The MBA Bench-Bar Symposium will take place on Thursday, Oct.
13, at the John Adams Courthouse and will feature remarks from
Supreme Judicial Court Chief Justice Roderick L. Ireland. This will
be Ireland's first Address to the Legal Community since he was
sworn in, in December 2010, as the first African-American chief
justice of the SJC.
The 4:30 p.m. event will also feature opening remarks from MBA
President Richard P. Campbell and the presentation of the National
Center for State Court's prestigious G. Thomas Munsterman Award for
Jury Innovation. NCSC Executive Vice President and General Counsel
Robert Baldwin will present the high honor to Massachusetts Jury
Commissioner Pamela J. Wood and the Jury Management Advisory
Committee, which is chaired by Superior Court Judge Robert C.
"We look forward to Chief Justice Ireland's keynote address that
will shed light on the current state of the courts in
Massachusetts," said Campbell. "I also look forward to joining
colleagues from the bar and the bench in hearing more about the
pressing issues that will claim Chief Justice Ireland's focus in
the coming months."
More event details will be forthcoming in MBA's Lawyers
