I have special needs; how can you accommodate those needs at a program?
If you are a person with a disability or special needs, please let us know in advance so that we can arrange to make your visit as convenient and comfortable as possible. MCLE’s Boston Conference Center is fully wheelchair accessible and assisted listening devices are available. If you are attending an MCLE program at a location other than our Boston Conference Center, we will work with the facility to make whatever accommodations are necessary. In addition, recordings of programs are available as mp3 files or CDs, and most of MCLE’s books can be made available electronically for those with specialized reading software. Contact MCLE's Director of Programs at 617-896-1243 to make the necessary arrangements.
Where is MCLE's Boston conference center?
The MCLE Conference Center is at Ten Winter Place, centrally located in the heart of Boston's Downtown Crossing district. Winter Place is a private way off of Winter Street, halfway between Tremont Street and Washington Street.
How do I reach MCLE's Boston conference center using public transit?
The conference center is easily accessible by public transit. There are four MBTA stops, serving five different subway lines, within an easy walk from MCLE—Park Street Station on the Red and Green Lines and Downtown Crossing Station on the Red and Orange Lines are each just half a block away, State Street Station on the Orange and Blue Lines is four blocks down Washington Street, and the Silver Line stops right outside our back door on Temple Place.
What parking areas are close to MCLE's Boston conference center?
There is no parking at MCLE; however, parking is available at several lots on or adjacent to Washington Street. The closest is the Lafayette Place Garage at One Avenue de Lafayette. Be advised, parking at the Lafayette Place Garage, or any downtown Boston garage, is expensive. You may have your Lafayette Place Garage parking stub validated at MCLE’s registration desk to receive a discount of $1.00 off each of the first two hours on your parking fee while visiting the MCLE Conference Center.
To reach the conference center from Lafayette Place Garage, exit the garage and take a right onto Avenue de Lafayette, then the first right onto Washington Street. At the center of Downtown Crossing, take a left onto Winter Street (3rd left from Avenue de Lafayette) and walk half a block to Winter Place, which will be to your left, between the TD North and Santander Banks. It may sound like a long walk, but MCLE is only a block from the garage.
