BBA News Release, April 2, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is presenting emergency legal issues (some foreseeable, others less so) that go to the heart of the BBA’s mission. For as long as this crisis persists, the Association will need a high-level Crisis Response Working Group to identify, consider and monitor emerging issues, and make recommendations as to appropriate BBA policy decisions, statements and actions. Last week, BBA President Chris Netski appointed members of the group, including President-Elect Marty Murphy as Chair. These members bring forth a diversity of expertise, which will allow them to have comprehensive discussions on the breadth of issues that have come up as a result of the pandemic.

The group has met twice so far and has broken itself down into the following subcommittees, which are considering the following issues:

Civil Access to Justice

Criminal Justice


Impact on Business, Non-Profits, Individuals and Practice Issues

The crisis group is looking forward to taking action on these issues, and will keep the membership updated on opportunities to help. We’ll continue to monitor and update you on these and other emerging concerns, but we also have a favor to ask of you: If you are aware of any other issues that have arisen in your field, or affecting the practice of law or access to justice generally, please let us know! Thanks in advance for your input.

Please refer to our COVID-19 resource page for more information on resources, webinars, and practice area-specific guides that we have gathered thus far. The BBA remains committed to continuing to serve our members, the legal profession, the justice system and the Greater Boston community as we face the challenges brought on by the rapid spread of the coronavirus.
