Foreword from the Editors
by Boston Bar Journal Board of Editors
The Supreme Judicial Court issued a number of influential decisions in its most recent term. The Boston Bar Journal Board of Editors thought it would be fitting to release a special edition of the Journal dedicated to summarizing several of these cases. In addition to the articles that appear in this special edition, we encourage readers to look at our past articles featuring decisions from the 2015-2016 term: Kace vs. Liang and Maling v. Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP.
