Harnais leads MBA officers for 2015-16


"The court is an adversarial system, but it's not a street fight. I'd like to go back to the way we used to treat each other."

MBA President-elect Robert W. Harnais, Patriot Ledger, August 26

The Patriot Ledger ran a feature story on Harnais and his historic appointment as the first Hispanic president of the Massachusetts Bar Association. Harnais will take over for MBA President Marsha V. Kazarosian on Sept. 1. The election of Harnais and the other MBA officers for 2015-16 was also featured by the State House News (subscription required).


Of note:

  • In addition to the clips mentioned above, MBA President-elect Robert W. Harnais was quoted by the Lowell Sun in an Aug. 25 story about the process of using interpreters throughout the state's court system. "An individual appearing before any court in need of an interpreter should not go, should not be allowed to go, in front of a court without an interpreter," said Harnais.
