The Boston Bar
Association today announced that the Winter Edition of the Boston Bar Journal, the Association's
premiere quarterly publication, will be released on January 8, 2014. To open the
New Year, the issue will offer something for everyone – from tips for the state
practitioner to advice on SEC practice; and from warnings about reservations of
rights in insurance cases to a celebration of the legal community's response to
the Marathon bombings.
The Boston Bar Association traces its origins to meetings convened by John Adams, who provided pro bono representation to the British soldiers prosecuted for the Boston Massacre and went on to become the nation’s second president. Its mission is to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, serve the community at large and promote diversity and inclusion.
