Boston Bar Journal Board of Editors

The Boston Bar Journal is an online quarterly publication of the Boston Bar Association. It presents timely information, analysis, and opinions to more than 15,000 lawyers in nearly every practice area by authors ranging from attorneys to judges and others interested in the development of the law. The Boston Bar Journal is governed by a volunteer Board of Editors dedicated to publishing outstanding articles that reflect their authors’ independent thought, and not necessarily the views of the Board or the Boston Bar Association.
