Are you an attorney or judge
interested in the Massachusetts Bar Association's Tiered Community Mentoring
(TCM) Program? Join program leaders for a virtual conversation on Tuesday,
Sept. 28, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., to learn more about the 2021-22 program and how you
can get involved.
The MBA's TCM program introduces high school students to information about
college, provides pre-law college students with information about the law school
admission process and gives law students an inside view of the practice of law
with their attorney mentors. It won the 2011 ABA Partnership Award from the
American Bar Association because of its commitment to diversity.
This worthwhile volunteer program creates a pipeline for career success for
young people from communities across the commonwealth. This year's programs will
be held virtually and continue to serve urban high school students in both
Boston and Worcester, with a focus on building a diverse mentoring network. By
sharing real-life experiences and guidance, attorney-mentors help participants
make informed decisions regarding their future careers.
We hope you will join us on Sept. 28 to discuss the ways you can get involved
in this program and share your knowledge of the legal profession and career
advice with high school, college and law school students.
Program speakers will include:
- MBA President Thomas M. Bond
- Barnstable County Probate and Family Court Judge
Angela M. Ordoñez
- Supreme Judicial Court Associate Justice Dalila
- Past program participant and MBA staffer Robert P. Jackson III
This meeting will be hosted using Zoom. Registration
