To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to express congratulations and thanks to members of the DeKalb Bar Association who spearheaded the recent observance of Law Day 2018.
Congratulations also go to DeKalb NAACP President Teresa Hardy on receiving the Liberty Bell Award, which is presented annually to a non-lawyer who has made significant contributions to the court system and the community. DeKalb County State Court Judge Dax E. Lopez made the presentation.
The national theme for this year’s celebration of Law Day, “Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom,” acknowledges the system of checks and balances among the three branches of U.S. government – legislative, executive and judicial.
We commend all members of the DeKalb Bar Association for a most successful observance of Law Day, which helps make the public aware of the importance and value of our justice system.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
