Members of the Massachusetts bar should aim for the highest level of professionalism in relationships with clients, colleagues, parties, administrative entities and the courts. The first years of practicing law are a critical time in the development of professional habits and character.

To help foster this transition, the fellows of the 2023 MBA’s Leadership Academy invite you to participate in the Transition into Practice Program Series (“TIPs”). The fellows designed the series to provide transitional support to newly admitted attorneys and soon-to-be-graduating law students so that they have the practical skills and judgment necessary to practice at the highest level.

The penultimate session of our ongoing six-part TIPs series will cover "What to Do When You Make a Mistake."

All programs are free and will help ensure a smooth entry into the practice of law.

This program will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required by 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6, in order to participate in this program. After you register with the MBA, please look for an email from MassBar Education with the Webinar ID and password.  The email will be sent before the program.
