“Greater Boston Legal Services (GBLS) and the BBA share a long history. Members of the BBA’s leadership were instrumental in the founding of the organization that would become GBLS in 1900, and we continue to have shared values. We are both engaged in vital activities which often can enhance the general public's access to, and understanding of, our justice system. Participating as a sponsor enables all of GBLS ' advocates to interact with, learn from, and educate a wide range of lawyers who share our values. We encourage our staff to participate fully in the various Sections, trainings, and other activities. This participation aids in the professional development of our staff and provides great leadership opportunities. By working together, we can advance our common goals of maintaining the integrity of the legal system and enhancing meaningful access to justice. It simply makes sense.”
