MCAD: Men Eligible for Maternity Leave 

In what has been described as a "bombshell," MCAD Commissioner Martin B. Ebel recently stated that MCAD will in the future apply the Massachusetts Maternity Act in a gender-neutral fashion. This means that men, as well as women, may be eligible for maternity leave, despite the fact that the Act specifically applies to women. For more, see this article in the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and the discussion in Massachusetts Law Updates.

NOTE: I'll be taking a summer blog break, but will be back with new postings in early August.

Help With Your Summer Legal Writing 

Need to write a client letter or legal memo and not quite sure how to go about it? Check out the law library's recently posted legal writing list on our Topics A-Z site. It's a recommended list of books covering various types of legal writing. Most of them have sample documents (e.g., sample legal memos, professional correspondence, appellate briefs, and more). To make it even easier, we've noted the specific chapters to look at for each type of document.

Ease that summer job anxiety by coming into the library and looking at some annotated samples. And while you're here, stop by the reference desk with any questions.
