Taking a brief respite from the hustle and bustle of the Annual Meeting’s busy schedule, lawyers and judges will come together at this luncheon to break bread with one another and enjoy a program emphasizing the professional ties they share.The centerpiece of the luncheon program will be remarks from Judge Mary Russell, who began a two-year term as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Missouri on July 1. She is expected to provide luncheon attendees with an update on issues facing the bench and bar when she offers the annual “Chief Justice’s Address.”
This event will also include the presentation of the President’s Award to Independence attorney Robert Welch and Columbia’s Skip Walther and the figurative “passing of the gavel” from outgoing President Patrick B. Starke to his successor, P. John “Jack” Brady.In addition, the luncheon will feature recognition as “Senior Counselors” those distinguished men and women who this year marks 50 years in practice or attainment of the age of 75 years. Their examples of leadership and service to their clients offer a legacy of professionalism for all who attend the luncheon.
