Notable & Quotable


Springfield Judicial Youth Corps Program

Sheff for Notable

"The MBA is proud to fund and provide such an innovative program in Springfield this year, giving students in one of the Commonwealth's largest urban centers an opportunity to experience firsthand how the justice system works in Massachusetts."

MBA President Douglas K. Sheff, Springfield Republican/, June 10

Sheff was quoted in the Republican/ about the return of the Supreme Judicial Court's Judicial Youth Corps program to Springfield after a 13-year hiatus. The program teaches public and private high school students about the judicial branch of government and fundamental principles of law.
