The Massachusetts Bar Association is committed to keeping its members informed about how the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is impacting the courts, their practices and the Massachusetts legal community.
Lawyers eJournal was paused in March in order to amplify the important daily pandemic-related notices from state and federal courts, which were shared on the MBA’s COVID-19 News and Information page and in a daily President’s Message email. While the President’s Message email will no longer appear as frequently, the MBA will continue to monitor and share court announcements daily on the MBA’s COVID-19 News and Information page. The MBA also posts notices regularly on its Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook social media accounts.
In addition, a compilation of all recent court notices will now appear in eJournal. Below please find important updates related to the COVID-19 pandemic issued in the last week.
