The Massachusetts Bar Association has released a new MassBar Beat podcast episode: “MBA President to Promote Civic Education, Launch Trial Academy.”
In this episode, host Jordan Rich talks with new Massachusetts Bar Association President Christopher A. Kenney about his goals for the 2018-19 year, including the MBA's role in promoting civics and civic education. Kenney also unveils plans for the MBA Trial Academy, which will train the next generation of trial lawyers and encourage them to provide limited assistance representation (LAR) to unrepresented individuals in court. The MBA's Leadership Academy and the association's work with the courts on lawyer well-being are also discussed.
This is Kenney's second appearance on the MassBar Beat. Two years ago, Kenney was interviewed for the episode called, "Mastering the Unspoken Word: Body Language and Nonverbal Communication in Court."
