Coming Soon -- Inaugural Edition of New, Online Only Boston Bar Journal

Following a year of thoughtful planning, the Boston Bar Association's premier publication, the Boston Bar Journal, has been redesigned as an online only publication. Consistent with the traditional schedule of the old print edition, the Journal will be published four times per year (Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer). The Fall edition is expected to hit e-mail inboxes of BBA members and other subscribers no later than September 23rd.

Published editions will also be available for viewing on the website of the Boston Bar Association. However, beginning with the Fall edition, the Journal will no longer be published or distributed in hard copy form. In addition, the Journal will continue to be available on Westlaw and LexisNexis.

"The Boston Bar Journal will continue to present timely information, analysis, and opinions in high quality articles written by attorneys, judges, and others interested in the development of the law," said Paul Lannon, Chair of the Boston Bar Journal Board of Editors and a Partner at Holland & Knight. "Our new online format will facilitate the sharing of articles that are practical in nature, geared to practitioners of the 21st Century."

Included in the Fall edition of the Boston Bar Journal will be:

The Boston Bar Journal has a circulation of more than 10,000 and is frequently reprinted for use at law schools and continuing legal education seminars throughout the nation.

The Boston Bar Association is a non-profit, voluntary membership organization of 11,000 attorneys drawn from private practice, corporations, government agencies, legal aid organizations, the courts, and law schools. It traces its origins to meetings convened by John Adams, the lawyer who provided pro bono representation to the British soldiers prosecuted for the Boston Massacre and went on to become the second president of the United States.
