Professor McLarney received his Juris Doctor from Columbia University School of Law in 1971 after receiving his Bachelors degree from the College of the Holy Cross in 1968. Prior to coming to CPCS, he worked first as a housing staff attorney and later as lobbyist for the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute and as a neighborhood office managing attorney for Greater Boston Legal Services.

Joining CPCS in 1984, he focused on clinical legal education as attorney supervisor and later director of the Community Advocates Law Office and Justice-At-Work Project.

He has served as the director of the legal education program, chaired the CPCS Curriculum Council and Personnel Board, and from 2000 to 2002 chaired the CPCS Policy Board during the college's re-organization process and the revision of the CPCS constitution. In addition, he has served as one of the CPCS representatives to the Faculty Council General Education Committee. In 2002, he was appointed the first chair of the undergraduate faculty. He is currently the Co-Principal Investigator (with Professor Joan Arches) on the Boston EITC Electric Filing and Technology Access Project and a member of the Labor Resource Center Advisory Board and the UMB Human Rights Working Group.
