Integrity is the key to understanding legal practice.  Law’s empire is defined by attitude, not territory or power or process.”  - Ronald Dworkin, Professor of Philosophy, Frank Henry Sommer Professor of Law, New York University

The Issues

  • Business Transactions

    The BBA is responsible for the creation of the successful Business Litigation Session which efficiently manages business disputes and has increased the efficiency and quality of judicial services provided to individuals, and any business involved in complex commercial disputes.

  • Consumer Protection

    After 10 years of work on homestead reform, the BBA lauded the Commonwealth's adoption of reforms providing greater protection for homeowners. The BBA continues to explore ways to advance consumer protection and its Consumer Protection Work Group continues to collaborate with the Attorney General's office to modernize regulations in a number of areas including the collection of consumer debt.

  • Rules of the Court

    The BBA frequently comments on proposed court rule changes. Our Sections serve as a resource and provide guidance to the courts on procedural and administrative changes and maintain a continuing dialogue with judges.
