Below you can find answers to non-legal questions about the human side of lawyering. Answers are written by licensed clinicians with the purpose of providing information, and are not a substitute for a clinical evaluation.
We do not post responses to questions that seem frivolous or unrelated to our mission — or that don’t seem to be from Massachusetts lawyers, law students, judges (or family members). We have no way to check back with you if you submit your question anonymously — consider using the private, confidential option.
For inquiries regarding bar admissions, including completion of bar admission applications and requirements for disclosure of information, contact to the Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at (617) 482-4466. The Board of Bar Examiners welcomes these inquiries. Please note that telephone inquiries may be handled ANONYMOUSLY at the request of the caller.
