The Mecklenburg County Bar celebrated the nation's 57th Law Day on May 7, 2015 at the Hilton Charlotte Center City. This year’s theme was “Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law ” in commemoration of the anniversary of the Magna Carta.
A regular highlight of the Law Day Luncheon is the presentation of the Liberty Bell Award, given each year to a non-lawyer who has made a significant contribution to the law. Elizabeth McKee, Executive Director of Leadership Charlotte, received the 2015 Award. Ms. McKee’s accomplishments and contributions were first recognized by Toussain Romain of the Mecklenburg County Public Defender’s Office.
MCB President Carla N. Archie concluded the Luncheon by thanking Event Sponsor Charlotte School of Law and reminded those in attendance that the Law Day Luncheon would not be possible without the support of our local law firms, legal departments and community organizations.
