The Massachusetts Bar Association’s Tiered Community Mentoring Program (TCM), which introduces high school students to information about college, provides pre-law college students with information about the law school admission process and gives law students an inside view of the practice of law with their attorney mentors, was recently awarded an honorable mention in the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division's Embracing Diversity Challenge. 

The MBA's TCM program, which celebrated its 10-year anniversary in April 2019, was recognized by the ABA for its positive impact in the legal community and its continued commitment to increasing diversity in the legal profession. Samuel A. Segal, the ABA’s YLD delegate for Massachusetts and New Hampshire and former chair of the MBA's Young Lawyers Division, accepted the award on behalf of the MBA at the 2019 ABA YLD Spring Conference at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

This is the second award the MBA's TCM program has received from the ABA. It was also honored with the 2011 ABA Partnership Award.
