ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS

CLE

The goal of Social Law’s continuing education courses is to provide the Massachusetts legal community with comprehensive educational seminars that are both affordable and relevant to our members.

Social Law seminars aim to educate attendees on the ethical, professional, and technological skills necessary for being a successful attorney in Massachusetts and all other jurisdictions.

Faculty members from the bench, bar, and the professional communities share their expertise in order to give back to the legal community.  Social Law makes an effort to partner with other educational institutes, such as Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, the Flaschner Judicial Institute, and the Law Office Management Assistance Program, that are committed to the bettering of the legal profession.

Attendees receive a certificate of attendance at the registration desk that can be used when submitting proof of CLE training.   

Between June 2013 and June 2014 the Social Law Library…

  • Averaged three continuing legal education or cultural events a month
  • Welcomed over 100 faculty members from the state and federal courts, the Massachusetts bar, clerks’ and attorney general’s offices, and the business community to share their expertise.
  • Hosted more than 1,500 members and non-members for continuing education seminars, cultural events, and training seminars.

Audio recordings and program materials are available for purchase through the library’s product page.  All printed materials provided to program attendees will be included with orders.

CULTURAL PROGRAMS

Social Law Library’s cultural events are organized to provide members of the Massachusetts legal community with a venue to engage in an intellectual exploration of the many facets of the profession.  Programs attempt to provoke discussion between judges, attorneys, and citizens of the Commonwealth in order to better understand how legal issues, both historical and contemporary, continue to affect our everyday lives.  The Library would like to thank our co-sponsors, specifically The William F. Wood Foundation, for assisting in the furthering of the Library’s goals.
