Access to Justice Fellows Program Information Session

Monday, January 27, 2020 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

The Access to Justice Fellows Program, a project of the Massachusetts Access to Justice Commission and the Lawyers Clearinghouse, enables senior lawyers and retired judges to partner with nonprofit organizations, courts, and other public interest entities to increase equal justice for all. By matching lawyers who are retired or transitioning toward retirement with groups that need their help, the A2J Fellows Program allows these lawyers to use their specialized skills and experience to do engaging pro bono work, remain active members of the legal community, and help people and groups in need. Fellows meet monthly for lunch at Mintz to discuss their pro bono projects. The next Program will run from September 2020 – June 2021.

Anyone interested in participating as an A2J Fellow is invited to attend this information session.  A panel of Fellows will be speaking about their first-hand experiences in the Program and prospective Fellows will have the opportunity to chat with current Fellows and staff about the Program.

This session will be moderated by:

  • Janet Donovan | Fellow at Lawyers Clearinghouse
  • Sue Finegan | Mintz, Co-Founder of the Fellows Program, Co-Chair of MA Access to Justice Commission
  • Susan Gedrick | Development and Fellows Director at Lawyers Clearinghouse
  • Martha Koster | Mintz, Co-Founder of the Fellows Program
