VIRTUAL LUNCH AND LAUGHS
The 10th Annual Lunch and Laughs With Legal Legends will be honoring a wife and husband who are truly legends in the legal profession—Ellie and Ed Flowers. The event will be held on Friday, October 23, 2020, from 12:00 Noon to 1:00 PM and will be held virtually because of the COVID-19 virus pandemic restrictions. Ellie served as the Assistant Dean for Career Services at the WVU College of Law for more than 20 years where she advised and guided thousands of judges and lawyers as they began their lives in the legal profession and the judicial system. Ed held leadership positions in WV as a practicing lawyer, a top state government official, a Supreme Court Justice, a U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge and a WVU Vice President. He is a Bar Foundation Fellow. The Flowers have selected the Black Law Students Association and the Career Services Center at the WVU College of Law to receive the net proceeds from the Lunch and Laughs in combination with the Bar Foundation grants program. The presenters for this “friendly roast” will be WVU President Gordon Gee, WVU Law School Professor Emeritus Jack Bowman and Dr. Carroll Morrison, former WVU College of Law official. Bar Foundation Immediate Past President Ellen Cappellanti (Charleston) will serve as the Master of Ceremonies and Bar Foundation President Chip Shaffer (Madison) will provide welcoming remarks.
