Monthly Luncheons & MVP Award

Every month, SPJ holds a luncheon for volunteers. The luncheons are very collegial and are part of the glue of the SPJ community. Every luncheon features a speaker on a legal topic of interest and opportunities to sign up for pro bono cases and projects. Upcoming luncheons are listed in the Calendar on this website. 

At each luncheon, Judge Ginsburg presents a Meg Connolly Most Valuable Partner (MVP) award to honor outstanding pro bono work by a volunteer attorney or law firm. The award is named for Mary M. (Meg) Connolly, the long-time Executive Director of the Volunteer Lawyers Project who was instrumental in the founding of Senior Partners for Justice. She retired in 2009 after providing substantial contributions in the promotion of access to justice to VLP and the Massachusetts legal services community.
