On Friday, October 7, 2011, the WV Bar Foundation will host the first “Lunch and Laughs with a Legal Legend” at the Erickson Alumni Center in Morgantown. It will be a “roast” of David C. Hardesty, Jr., with well known individuals telling humorous stories and funny jokes about the WVU President Emeritus and current WVU Law School Professor.
The proceeds from the event will be designated to Professor Hardesty’s choice of scholarships for WVU Law School students and for Bar Foundation grants to improve the administration of justice in West Virginia.
More information coming in the near future.
