To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend congratulations to all members of the Augusta Bar Association on its recent observance of Law Day 2017, featuring American Bar Association President Linda Klein as keynote speaker.
The national theme for this year’s celebration of Law Day is “The 14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy,” which commemorates the amendment’s citizenship, due process and equal protection clauses in our Constitution, thus advancing the rights of all Americans.
We thank Linda Klein for her participation, and we salute the officers and members of the Augusta Bar Association for their leadership in coordinating a most successful Law Day observance, which helps raise public awareness of the importance and value of our justice system.
Patrick T. O’Connor
President, State Bar of Georgia
