The Board of Bar Overseers encourages interested attorneys and members of the public across the Commonwealth to apply for appointment to a three-year term (2015 – 2017) as a volunteer Hearing Committee member. Hearing Committees sit locally in panels of three as fact-finding tribunals in disciplinary proceedings brought by the Office of Bar Counsel against individual attorneys. The Committees hear testimony, take evidence, make adjudicatory rulings, and prepare a written report and recommendation for the Board of Bar Overseers. Committee members receive no monetary compensation.
Resumes of interested attorneys (ten years or more of professional experience) and members of the public (excluding paralegals and those employed in a legal related field) should be sent to Sandra Mahabit, by mail at: Board of Bar Overseers, 99 High Street, 2nd Floor, Boston, MA 02110 or email at: email@example.com, on or before October 31, 2014.
