On Wednesday, the BBA’s College & University Law Section
held its annual legislative update brown bag lunch program
featuring speaker Rob McCarron
, Vice President for Government Relations and General Counsel of the Association of Independent Colleges & Universities in Massachusetts (AICUM). You may recall that McCarron shared his legislative wisdom and experience on Issue Spot before, speaking about his time as the former Director of Legal Affairs for the Massachusetts House Committee on Ways & Means
. This time, he shared his expertise on current legislation that could impact the states’ many higher education institutions. The program was well attended and felt more like a vibrant discussion than lecture as the many in-house counsels for major Boston education institutions seated around the table actively participated with McCarron, sharing their concerns, anecdotes, and questions with the group to the benefit of all in attendance.
