From the Collection: Massachusetts Evidence ResourcesFrom the Collection: Massachusetts Evidence Resources
Unlike the Federal Courts, Massachusetts has no “Rules of Evidence” – there is no set of codified rules that have been adopted by the legislature and the courts. Instead, the admission of facts is governed by the common law. Luckily for practitioners, there are a number of resources in our collection that provide solid overviews of Massachusetts evidentiary law.

Creating Strong Passwords and What to AvoidCreating Strong Passwords and What to Avoid
Developing strong passwords is equal parts strategy and art:

• Think of something you can remember. It can be a sentence or a phrase. For example, it could be something like “FenwayParkAmericas MostBelovedBallpark”.

• Check and see if a long phrase is supported.

• If long phrases are not supported, convert it to a password. Take the first letter of each word of the sentence that you've created to create a new, nonsensical word. Using the example above, you'd get: "fpambb".
