On Thursday, Jan. 27, starting at 11 a.m., the Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA) will co-sponsor a Talk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid to advocate for increased funding for civil legal services throughout the commonwealth. Traditionally known as the Walk to the Hill and attended by hundreds of lawyers at the State House, the annual event will be held virtually for a second consecutive year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Once again, the event will highlight the essential nature of civil legal aid and encourage members of the legal community to share that message with their legislators.
