Mark your calendars: 2012 MBA Annual Dinner set for Thursday, May 31

Dinner to include annual Access to Justice Award presentations and honor Legislator of the Year Awardee DeLeo

The Massachusetts Bar Association is proud to announce it will be holding its 2012 Annual Dinner on Thursday, May 31 at the Westin Waterfront Hotel, 425 Summer St., Boston. The event will feature the presentation of both the annual MBA Access to Justice Awards and the Legislator of the Year Award to House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo.

A popular annual event, the MBA's Access to Justice Awards will honor five attorneys and one law firm for their efforts in providing exemplary legal services to the public.

DeLeo (D-Winthrop) will be honored with the MBA's Legislator of the Year Award, which is given to a distinguished Massachusetts politician who has made an exceptional contribution to the improvement of the administration of justice. House Speaker since January 2009, DeLeo's accomplishments include spearheading legislation that will transform the management of the state's courts by hiring a professional business administrator to oversee all of its business aspects. That bill, applauded by the MBA, for being both bold and thoughtful, was signed into law by Gov. Deval Patrick this past summer and is in the process of being implemented.
