Boston Bar | Law Day Dinner

Seth Moulton

Congressman Seth Moulton was elected to represent the 6th District of Massachusetts in 2014. He currently serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the House Budget Committee.

After graduating from Harvard in 2001, Moulton joined the United States Marine Corps. He served four tours in Iraq as a Marine Corps infantry officer, including two as an infantry platoon commander and two as a Special Assistant to General David Petraeus. Moulton left the Marines in 2008 with the rank of Captain, attended Harvard Business School and the Kennedy School of Government, and worked in the private sector as managing director of the Texas Central Railway.

In November of 2015, the Boston Bar welcomed Congressman Moulton to its Veterans Day reception. The event was the first in an ongoing series of gatherings for Boston Bar members who are also current or former members of the military to share common experiences and challenges.

Meet the Evening's Honorees

THURGOOD MARSHALL AWARD | Elaine Herrmann Blais, Goodwin
The Thurgood Marshall award was established to recognize attorneys in private practice in Greater Boston for their extraordinary efforts in enhancing the human dignity of others through legal services to Massachusetts’s low-income population. In addition to maintaining a successful practice as head of the Litigation Department in Goodwin’s Boston office, Blais has dedicated substantial pro bono hours to helping immigrant and refugee children escape dangerous situations in their home country and find security in the United States.

JOHN G. BROOKS LEGAL SERVICES AWARD |  Anne Mackin, Greater Boston Legal Services
The John G. Brooks Legal Services award is presented to professional legal services attorneys for their outstanding work on behalf of indigent people in the Boston area. From her steadfast dedication to clients to her generous mentorship of colleagues, Mackin exemplifies all that the Boston Bar looks to honor in the legal profession—dedication to excellence, commitment to public service, and the celebration of diversity. Her work representing immigrant children in Massachusetts is more important than ever, and we salute her perseverance in helping those most in need.

We hope you join us for an inspirational evening as the Boston Bar once again hosts our Law Day Dinner. The annual event brings together members of the bar, the bench, and the business communities to recognize leaders who shape and protect the rule of law.
