Notice of Vacancies on the Clients' Security Board
The Justices of the Supreme Judicial Court invite interested attorneys to apply for appointment to a five-year term on the Clients' Security Board: https://www.mass.gov/news/notice-of-available-positions-on-the-clients-security-board.
Pursuant to Supreme Judicial Court Rule 4:04, the Board is comprised of seven volunteer members of the Massachusetts bar. It manages the fund used to reimburse members of the public who have sustained a financial loss caused by the dishonest conduct of a member of the bar acting as an attorney or a fiduciary. The Board anticipates that members will be permitted to participate in Board business virtually as needed, though meetings may also be held in person on occasion when circumstances permit or require.
The Justices will be making two appointments to the Board. Experienced attorneys with expertise in consumer bankruptcy law or insurance and personal injury litigation are encouraged to apply. The Justices also seek applications from attorneys with legal aid, immigration, or other legal experience working with historically underrepresented or underserved communities. Attorneys with diverse backgrounds and experiences, as well as those who practice outside the immediate Boston metropolitan area, are strongly encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter and one-page resume to Anna Rachel Dray-Siegel at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1, 2023. Questions about the application process or the position should be directed to Anna.
