2014 Annual Dinner Keynote Speaker Chris Matthews, a highly respected political news commentator who hosts the top-rated Hardball program on MSNBC

The Massachusetts Bar Association is pleased to announce that Chris Matthews will deliver the keynote address at its Annual Dinner on Thursday, May 15, at the Westin Boston Waterfront.

Matthews is a highly respected political news commentator, who hosts the top-rated Hardball program on MSNBC. Matthews is also a celebrated author of several literary works, including books profiling some of Massachusetts' favorite sons, John F. Kennedy and Tip O'Neill.

Whether working in government or as a journalist, Matthews has kept an abiding faith in electoral politics, with a quadrennial hope that the American people will make the best judgment on who should lead. Matthews has kept that faith through war and peace, good times and bad, through great leaders and not-so-great. Matthews has never lost his vigorous love of democracy and how it can serve to make this country, through all its challenges, a more perfect union.

"We are honored to have Chris Matthews address the Massachusetts legal community at our hallmark event of the association year," MBA President Douglas K. Sheff said. "Matthews' presence at our annual dinner is especially meaningful because he shares the Massachusetts Bar Association's belief in the importance of speaking up on behalf of justice and what's right."
