Section 35 Training

The Massachusetts Bar Association hosted a "Substance Abuse Civil Commitment: An Attorney's Guide to the Law," training program for attorneys interested in assisting families and friends dealing with very difficult circumstances. In addition to learning how to help families and friends with Section 35 petitions, the expert panel guided participants through the new Uniform Trial Court Rules for Civil Commitment Proceedings for Alcohol and Substance Abuse.
