The return of the MBA’s Spring Annual Conference

Issue January 2010

March 11-12 event to feature Gala Dinner, Annual Access to Justice Awards Luncheon and CLE

"Achieving a Competitive Advantage in Changing Times" is the theme of the Massachusetts Bar Association's spring Annual Conference. MBA AC10 will take place on Thursday, March 11 and Friday, March 12, 2010 at the Westin Copley Place in Boston.

The conference will include continuing legal education programming, the MBA Gala Dinner, the Annual Access to Justice Awards Luncheon, ample networking and exposure to vendors offering the latest in law practice management technology and tools.

"The MBA proudly brings the conference's many components back to one spring event," said MBA President Valerie A. Yarashus, who explained that for the last two years, the conference's various components had been held independently throughout the association year (September-August).

"Especially given today's market, we are pleased to deliver on our members' needs to keep current and competitive," she added.

The conference's CLE will include two continuous tracks on law practice management and recent developments. In addition to a "Social Media Tips" plenary session, other featured LPM topics include "60 Sites in 60 Minutes" and "Improving Law Office Efficiency." Recent development programs will include those in bankruptcy, criminal, employment, family, personal injury/insurance, probate and real estate law.
