About MHLAC Training

The Mental Health Legal Advisors Committee provides educational seminars on issues of mental health for attorneys, advocates, and other professionals of all levels of experience through our Training Department. Our trainings focus on representing persons with mental illness in legal settings and usually contain a morning of clinical teaching sessions and an afternoon of legal teaching sessions. Our trainings provide continuing legal education credits from both the Mental Health Law Unit and the Children and Family Law Unit of the Committee for Public Counsel Services (CPCS). Sometimes credits may be available from other organizations and for other purposes. Packets of written materials for most seminars are available through MHLAC for $25.

Once announced, program and registration information regarding MHLAC's next conference is available on the Upcoming Training page.

Please contact Miriam Ruttenberg with any questions you may have regarding MHLAC's training program. She can be reached at or 617-338-2345 x143.
