Law Day Dinner 2011

Celebrating 250 years of history & focusing on the future

 

The BBA Law Day Dinner - the largest annual gathering of the Greater Boston legal community - is a great tradition that brings together members of the bar, the bench and the business communities.   Join us at this year's event as we celebrate our history and take a look ahead at the future of our organization, our community and our profession.

 

The Boston Bar Association traces its roots back to 1761, when President John Adams convened meetings of Boston attorneys in the taverns around Beacon Hill to discuss the most pressing issues of the time.  In the centuries since its founding, the Boston Bar Association has remained a dynamic force in both the legal and Greater Boston communities by constantly working to keep pace with a changing city and an ever evolving profession.

 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

 

Dean Martha Minow, Harvard Law School

 

The BBA is excited to welcome Harvard Law School Dean Martha Minow to deliver the keynote address.  An expert in human rights, Dean Minow is also a prolific author whose latest work, In Brown’s Wake, examines the impact of the landmark Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education on issues beyond race, such as social science, the international community and other identity groups.   Minow currently serves as Vice Chair of the board of the Legal Services Corporation, the government-sponsored organization that provides civil legal assistance to low-income Americans – a group she was appointed to in 2009 by her former student President Barack Obama.
