SJC Seeks Lawyer Response in Evaluation of Judges in Western Massachusetts
As part of the ongoing program to evaluate and enhance judicial performance, during the week of February 24, the Supreme Judicial Court will send questionnaires to attorneys and court employees to evaluate 57 Superior, District, Probate and Family, Housing and Juvenile Court judges in the counties of Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire. The Court asks that any attorney who receives a questionnaire should take the time to complete it, as the more responses received, the more helpful the judicial evaluations will be. The Supreme Judicial Court's evaluation program is the best opportunity for attorneys to offer their opinions of the members of the judiciary. For more information, including instructions on how to respond to the questionnaires, see the Position PostingReturn to Top

Special Report on Asian Americans in the Northeast

Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC has published a special report entitled A Community of Contrasts: Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders in the Northeast, 2013, a much-needed resource supporting growing Asian American and NHPI movements in places like Boston, New York, and Philadelphia with the latest data on the region’s diverse communities. While some reports on Asian Americans and NHPI paint a simplistically glossy picture, this report aims to provide a richer portrait of the social, economic, and political challenges and opportunities our communities face in the Northeast. A resource such as this report can catalyze public education opportunities, better inform policy campaigns, and provide the content for leadership training for our communities.  Return to Top
