MBA welcomes the newest members of the bar

Issue January 2012 By Tricia M. Oliver

Nearly 100 of Massachusetts' newest lawyers gathered across the street from the Massachusetts Bar Association's Boston headquarters on Nov. 30 to celebrate their recent admission to the bar. New admittees and members of the group hosting the festive event -- the MBA's Young Lawyers Division -- enjoyed a special networking event from 6 to 8 p.m.

The congratulatory event followed a series of swearing-in ceremonies held in historic Faneuil Hall earlier in the month. Just over 1,500 attorneys were sworn into the Massachusetts bar during the series.
