2018 Law Day Luncheon
featuring keynote speaker ADAM LIPTAK
Law Day is part of a national American Bar Association (ABA) celebration that, this year, is using the theme “Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom”. The Mecklenburg County Bar (MCB) will host its annual Law Day Luncheon on Thursday, May 3 at the Hilton Charlotte Center City at 12 p.m.
We are pleased to announce that Adam Liptak will provide the keynote address on the separation of powers at this year’s luncheon. Adam Liptak covers the Supreme Court for The New York Times. Liptak’s column on legal affairs, “Sidebar,” appears every other Tuesday. A graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School, Liptak practiced law for 14 years before joining the paper’s news staff in 2002. He was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting in 2009 and received the Scripps Howard Award for Washington reporting in 2010. He was awarded Hofstra University’s Presidential Medal and an honorary doctorate from Stetson University College of Law. Liptak is a visiting lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School and has taught courses at Yale Law School and New York University School ofLaw.
In keeping with MCB Law Day tradition, we will present the Liberty Bell Award to a non-lawyer who has served our public and legal community in immeasurable ways over the years.
The MCB is proud to announce member George Hanna will receive the 2018 North Carolina State Bar’s John B. McMillan Distinguished Service award. The annual award recognizes current and retired members of the North Carolina State Bar throughout the state who have demonstrated exemplary service to the legal profession. The award presentation will be held at our annual Law Day celebration. For more information on the John B. McMillan Distinguished Service Award, click here.
