Like to listen? We’ve interviewed bar counsel Connie Vecchione and malpractice attorney Jim Bolan about the new rules, and the practical changes they mean for local attorneys, on an episode of Legal Talk Network’s Special Reports. The full episode is accessible here.
Like to watch? Jim, Connie and John Whitlock will present on the subject for Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly at Social Law Library on November 4. That program will feature opportunities for asking questions. Register here.
Like to knit? . . . Sorry, I guess you’re out of luck. Unless . . . Actually: no. Nope.
