MBA Recognizes a Man for Others

Thomas Carey ’65 adds Volunteer Recognition Award to a long list of honors.


On June 21, Boston College Law Professor Thomas Carey ’65 was honored with the Massachusetts Bar Association’s (MBA) Volunteer Recognition Award. The award was bestowed for Carey’s devoted service to the MBA, specifically for his roles as a longtime member and chair of the MBA Amicus Brief Committee, as the founding chair and longtime member of the Appellate Bench-Bar Committee, and as an almost 20-year member of and recurrent author on the Massachusetts Law Review Editorial Board.

MBA President Grace V.B. Garcia spoke highly of Carey at the ceremony, describing him as “a giant in the legal community” and “a driving force behind the MBA’s mantra as the preeminent voice of the legal profession.”

The award joins Carey’s long list of honors, including the MBA’s President’s Award he received in May of 2021. However, it is not only his dedication to the MBA that makes Carey stand out; it is also his passion for serving others. He has done so through his many roles as a professor at BC Law, a coach for BC’s National Moot Court team, a contributor to the MBA, an appellate advocate, and a litigation, arbitration, and employment attorney for Hogan Lovells.
