Welcome from the MBLA President

Dear MBLA Members, Friends and Supporters,

It brings me great honor and privilege to serve as the President of the Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association for the 2018-2019 program year. Each year, the MBLA embarks on new and improved ways to advance its mission, building upon the legacy of all of the leaders who have come before.

Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association

Since 1973, the Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association (MBLA) has provided a valuable network and visible presence for attorneys of color within the Massachusetts legal community.

The MBLA is responsible for providing its membership with professional development and career advancement through trainings, continued education and mentorship programs.

The MBLA also sponsors forums on current topics of interest to persons in the legal community, and seeks collaborations with other bar associations and professional organizations, particularly those interested in providing services to communities of color.
