The Judiciary & Amicus Committee is in charge of promoting diversity in the judiciary and evaluating the intersection of LGBTQ issues and the judiciary. In addition, the Committee seeks out opportunities for the Mass. LGBTQ Bar to participate as an amicus, either on its own or as a partner with other organizations, and reviews requests made to the Association to join as an amicus. The Committee also reviews requests from the SJC for comment on proposed rule changes and solicits input from Mass. LGBTQ Bar members with pertinent experience to help frame the Association’s comments.
The 2022-2023 Co-Chairs of the Judiciary & Amicus Committee are Eva Jellison ([email protected]) and Joe Lucia ([email protected])
