To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend congratulations to all members of the Columbus Bar Association on its recent observance of Law Day 2017, featuring Court of Appeals of Georgia Judge Stephen Dillard 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 Judge Dillard for his participation, and we salute Columbus Bar Association President Brandon Peak, Chief Judge Gil McBride and other local Bar members for their leadership in coordinating a most successful Law Day observance.
Patrick T. O'Connor
President, State Bar of Georgia
