The Massachusetts Trial Court's District Court Department, in partnership with the Massachusetts Bar Association and local county bar associations, is holding a series of bench-bar gatherings across the commonwealth to facilitate increased dialogue between judges, clerk magistrates, chief probation officers, local practitioners and other court personnel.

If you would like to attend, or have suggest topics or questions, please [e-mail benchbar] or call MBA Director of Policy and Operations Lee Constantine at (617) 338-0692.

The inaugural bench-bar meeting is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 30, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., at the George N. Covett Courthouse, 215 Main St., Brockton and will include remarks from Chief Justice of the Trial Court Paula M. Carey and Chief Justice of the District Court Paul C. Dawley.

The goal of the bench-bar outreach effort is to inform practitioners of recent developments in the District Court and to work together with the bar to improve District Court practice. We welcome local members of the bar to participate in what promises to be a worthwhile and interesting discussion.
