The National Black Lawyers are partnering with the Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute for “Strength in Numbers: Celebrating African American Representation in the Law.” The event will be held May 9 in Atlanta, Georgia. Strength in Numbers is dedicated to exploring the current and future representation of African American lawyers in the US legal community. As both a celebration of the myriad challenges African Americans lawyers have overcome throughout their careers, and an acknowledgment of the work left ahead, this program invites participants to share ideas and glean strategic clarity around solutions and opportunities currently in place across the profession.
In an America at a cultural crux between “great leaps forward” and “many steps back,” black Americans, who are no strangers to hardship, continue to fight for equality. And while that struggle wages on, the promises fulfilled by black leaders of generations past should be considered and celebrated. Please join us for a networking luncheon and special keynote from Presiding Judge M. Yvette Miller of the Court of Appeals of the State of Georgia.
Judge Miller was appointed by Governor Roy Barnes on July 12, 1999, and became the 65th Judge on the Court. She is the first African-American woman to sit on the Court and to serve as its Chief Judge. During her tenure as Chief Judge, Judge Miller implemented the e-filing initiative, which has improved access to the appellate court for attorneys and parties throughout the state of Georgia.
