Matt Segal delivers key note speech at 2018 LBA Spring Dinner


The 2018 LBA Spring Dinner at the North Andover Country Club featured key note speaker Matt Segal, Legal Director at the ACLU of Massachusetts.  Segal spoke with the LBA about what it means to be a lawyer in the current era, focusing on the lawyer's role as the conscience of the country in the face of what he described as government by bigotry.  Segal discussed the litigation resulting in an emergency restraining order against Trump's original travel ban and touched on other civil rights issues being litigated by the ACLU and others.   

Mike Weinhold, of Northeast Legal Aid, and Jay McManus and Ernesto Berkowitz Groennou of Children's Law Center, also spoke to the dinner crowd about pro bono opportunities.

The LBA thanks its guests, Matt Segal, Mike Weinhold, Jay McManus and Ernesto Berkowitz Groennou, for sharing their time and experience with us!
