MBA leaders take part in ABA Day in Washington

Issue June 2012

Massachusetts Bar Association Vice President Marsha V. Kazarosian and Chief Legal Counsel and Chief Operating Officer Martin W. Healy participated in American Bar Association Day in Washington, D.C., on April 18.

ABA Day gathers bar leaders from across the country to lobby their congressional delegations on issues of importance to the organized bar. The MBA has participated in ABA Day since its inception more than 15 years ago.

In addition to meeting with members of the Massachusetts congressional delegation, Kazarosian and Healy attended a meeting at the White House with Cynthia Hogan, chief counsel to Vice President Joseph R. Biden to discuss the Federal Violence Against Women Act. This year, ABA Day focused on funding for the Legal Services Corporation, passage of the Court Fee Intercept Act and the Violence Against Women Act.
