Network's Annual Dinner for Bar Presidents
On September 19, 2012, the Hon. Jonathan Lippman addressed the bar leaders at Network's annual dinner for the Presidents of its member organizations. Judge Lippman spoke about the importance of pro bono service, the new pro bono service requirements for bar admission, and ways to bridge the justice gap. Judge Lippman asked the bars to be advocates for the Judiciary before the Legislature and addressed various concerns raised by the bar leaders during the discussion period. A delightful dinner followed.
