Are you wondering how you may assist the Probate and Family Court at a time
when budgetary constraints and staffing shortages create particular challenges
while simultaneously learning skills that may expand and grow your law practices
at little or no cost to you? Look no further…..
Boston Bar Association and the Massachusetts Bar Association cordially invite family law
practitioners with at least five (5) years of domestic relations experience to
participate in a conciliation training at the Boston Bar Association
Headquarters located at 16 Beacon Street in Boston, Massachusetts.
At this program, you will become certified as a conciliator that will enable
you to be placed on the Probate and Family Courts' list of trained
conciliators. Attendance at the program is free, except for the fees
associated with materials if you do not print them out yourself.
In exchange, you will be asked to commit to volunteering
for at least one day at the Probate and Family Court as a conciliator
or for a "conciliation" project such as the pilot programs in in Middlesex and Suffolk counties.
This program is open to first-timers only. There are
limited spots left to participate in this unique opportunity, so please respond
quickly if you wish to attend. Participants will be able to attend on a
first come, first serve basis. To register, please email Jen Jones at
If you are already a trained conciliator and are interested in volunteer
conciliation opportunities, please contact the Boston Bar Association's Family
Law Steering Committee.
