Newton, MA--BC Law professors Alan Minuskin and Paul Tremblay were recently honored for their commitment to clinical legal education and 30 years of service to the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation (MLAC), an organization dedicated to ensuring equal access to justice and representation for low-income people. The awards ceremony was held on May 22 at the Seaport Boston Hotel, and was part of MLAC’s 30th-anniversary gala.
Professors Minuskin and Tremblay have supervised various clinical programs at BC Law. Minuskin currently directs the Elder Legal Services Project at Boston College’s Legal Assistance Bureau, which serves approximately 500 elder clients each year, while Professor Tremblay runs the BC Community Enterprise Clinic, which supports economic progress in under-resourced neighborhoods. Professors Minuskin and Tremblay have both been involved with the MLAC and MLAC-associated programs since its incorporation.
Founded by the Commonwealth in 1983, MLAC has worked to support civil legal aid programs for unemployed workers, domestic violence survivors, donating almost $350 million in grants to diverse programs throughout Massachusetts. It is the single largest source of legal aid funding in the state.
