On January 29th, attorneys who served in the military once again gathered in the Claflin Center (You may remember the BBA’s Veterans Day Reception, featuring Congressman Seth Moulton, in November). This event, called the Veterans Meet & Greet Luncheon, was the first of a series of lunchtime events scheduled this year aimed at bringing attorneys who served in the military and their allies together to build a community within the BBA.

The Veterans Meet & Greet gives attorneys with military backgrounds an opportunity to connect in an informal, relaxed setting.

Here’s what BBA Military & Veterans Committee Co-Chair Dan Nagin (Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School) had to same about the events:

“The luncheons provide a wonderful opportunity for veterans to come together at the BBA in an informal setting, but where much can be accomplished.  The luncheons are intended to help strengthen the sense of community for veterans within the legal profession, to promote mentorship relationships, and to provide a conduit for information about resources for veterans and the BBA’s many pro bono initiatives for local veterans and servicemembers with unmet legal needs.”
