Ireland to deliver first address to bar at Oct. 13 symposium
The MBA Bench-Bar Symposium will take
place on Thursday, Oct. 13, at the John Adams Courthouse and will
feature remarks from Supreme Judicial Court Chief Justice Roderick
L. Ireland. This will be Ireland's first Address to the Legal
Community since he was sworn in, in December 2010, as the first
African-American chief justice of the SJC.
The 4:30 p.m. event will also feature opening remarks from MBA
President Richard P. Campbell and the presentation of the National
Center for State Court's prestigious G. Thomas Munsterman Award for
Jury Innovation. NCSC Executive Vice President and General Counsel
Robert Baldwin will present the high honor to Massachusetts Jury
Commissioner Pamela J. Wood and the Jury Management Advisory
Committee, which is chaired by Superior Court Judge Robert C.
"We look forward to Chief Justice Ireland's keynote address that
will shed light on the current state of the courts in
Massachusetts," said Campbell. "I also look forward to joining
colleagues from the bar and the bench in hearing more about the
pressing issues that will claim Chief Justice Ireland's focus in
the coming months."
