Note from the chair
Why be a member of the Massachusetts Bar Association?
The hot topic among new lawyers is jobs. The main question is
where a new lawyer can find a job. Instead of providing an article
on networking or the like, I put together a list to help guide in
the job search process. It is not a complete list and it offers
some basic steps to take.
For instance, one of the best places to network is a bar
association. However, you might need to do more than simply shake
hands at a social function. If you want to learn more about
position in a specific area of law, for instance business law, then
volunteer with the Massachusetts Bar Association's Business Law
Section. The list below only has the general term "Massachusetts
Bar Association." Obviously, your networking should be targeted
Additionally, throughout the year, the MBA offers numerous events
and programs designed for the job seeker. Speed networking, career
panels, and hanging a shingle are a few great events for any job
seeker. The Young Lawyers Division routinely offers these
programs throughout the year.
The MBA's upcoming Centennial Conference is full of programs
ranging from networking strategies to information on LAR to social
media for lawyers. The complete list of programs can be found here.
If you would like to make suggestions for additional resources or
Web sites, please contact me directly.
Good luck in your job search.
