Location: 16 Beacon St. Boston, Ma

 

The Access to Justice Fellows Program, a project of the Massachusetts Access to Justice Commission and the Lawyers Clearinghouse, enables senior lawyers and retired judges to partner with nonprofit organizations, courts, and other public interest entities to increase equal justice for all.  By matching lawyers who are retired or transitioning toward retirement with groups that need their help, the Fellows Program allows these lawyers to use their specialized skills and experience to do engaging pro bono work, remain active members of the legal community, and help people and groups in need.

Those interested in participating as a Fellow as well as those wishing to host a Fellow within their organization are invited to attend this discussion of the program’s benefits, what types of organizations and projects are eligible to apply, and what to expect during the fellowship year.  Additionally, former Fellows and partner organizations will be speaking about their first-hand experiences with the Program.
