The Massachusetts Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division is excited to announce that it is holding its Sixth Annual Symposium as an in-person event on Tuesday, April 9, at MBA headquarters, located at 20 West St., Boston. The symposium’s focus is on generating a new legal landscape: inclusive, informed & intentional lawyering.
The symposium will include a guest keynote address by Hon. Michelle Fentress, a judge in the Massachusetts District Court, as well as networking and a plenary session on mindfulness. Well-being is an important component in every attorney’s performance and resilience. This plenary session will focus on the specific issues that impact attorneys early in their legal careers. The symposium will also include multiple programming tracks designed to ensure that there is something for everyone, including:

  • Session 2A: Is ChatGPT a better lawyer than me? Demystifying the AI Legal
  • Landscape
  • Session 2B: Clicking with Caution: Exploring cybersecurity risks and best practices for the workplace
  • Session 2C: Networking with a purpose: Working a room effectively and intentionally
  • Session 2D: Law and Democracy: Combatting the impact of recent SCOTUS decisions on our eroding rights
The MBA is excited to announce that a photographer will be at the symposium and available to take professional headshots of attendees. Be sure to register today!

A networking reception with food and beverages will directly follow the symposium. All registrants are encouraged to join us to begin making connections with colleagues in the legal field. 


*Please be sure to check out the low cost of membership for young attorneys. Your membership cost and its additional benefits are frequently much more cost-effective than our single-conference price.

Please contact to let us know which breakout session interests you, so that we can ensure the most popular sessions are in the largest rooms.

Registration is required by 9 a.m. on Monday, April 8.
