Lubin & Meyer Doubles Support for Pro Bono and Legal Aid Training

Massachusetts personal injury law firm Lubin & Meyer has doubled its leadership gift to the MCLE New England, which has enabled lawyers to attend nearly 50 MCLE (continuing legal education) programs over the past five years. By committing another $25,000 to the Lubin & Meyer Scholarship Fund the firm has effectively doubled the fund’s impact.

The fund will now provide 20 scholarships to MCLE programs every year for lawyers who serve the public interest.

Five years ago, the Lubin & Meyer extended its support to the training of those who serve the poor with a leadership pledge of $25,000 to MCLE’s scholarship program, helping MCLE reach the initial $2.5 million milestone. That gift helped to strengthen the foundation of an endowment that has now exceeded $3.3 million towards a $5 million goal to endow 2,000 scholarships annually for the benefit of legal aid staff attorneys, private practitioners who accept pro bono cases, and other deserving lawyers who — without financial assistance — would not be able to attend MCLE programs.
