COVID-19 Updates

As COVID-19 challenges continue to develop in our area, MSBA is bringing together useful resources to help you deal with the impact, plan ahead, focus on your well-being, continue to engage in learning opportunities, and stay safe. MSBA has taken steps to address concerns about the illness by offering virtual attendance options for our upcoming meetings and CLEs, and postponing other in-person events as appropriate, as we are committed to the health and safety of our members and our staff.

One of the things that I appreciate about the MSBA is the ability to integrate lawyers who have very different kinds of experiences … Whether you’re working for government, a small firm, individually, or for a very large firm, MSBA is one of the few places where all of that comes together.
