Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

This Court is constitutionally and legislatively entrusted with the fair and just resolution of disputes in order to preserve the rule of law and to protect the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States. As such, it is imperative that all persons involved in cases before the Court, including without limitation attorneys and parties, have equal access to the Court and that the Court and its staff treat each of those persons with equal respect and dignity, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or any other unique attribute. While the Court and its staff have engaged in training and education to support its equity, diversity, and inclusion goals and hope that those efforts have resulted in a clear demonstration of respect for the dignity of every person having business before the Court, we recognize the need to regularly challenge our assumptions and to continue to strive to reach those goals and to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion within the Court itself.

If you observe or have an experience that falls short of the Court’s commitment to provide equal access and treatment for all, we encourage you to contact us to inform us how we may improve by calling (617) 748-5317, emailing dei@mab.uscourts.gov, or by submitting your comments through the Court's online Contact Form. You may provide information for us to contact you or submit information anonymously.
