The Flaschner Judicial Institute is dedicated to assisting both new and experienced judges in their overall professional development throughout their judicial careers. The institute promotes the highest possible standards of education for the benefit of the administration of justice.

For the first time in its 40-year history, Flaschner is inviting members of the bench and bar to a program that offers a rare opportunity to see how the education of our state’s judges is conducted, how it evolves, and where opportunities may exist for the bench and bar to collaborate. Among other topics, our esteemed faculty will discuss diversity, inclusion, overcoming implicit bias, civility and stresses associated with working during the pandemic. 

This session will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required by 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 10, to participate in this program. After you register with the MBA, please look for an email from MassBar Education with the Meeting ID and Password. The email will be sent before the program on March 10.
