The Bar Foundation’s successful first annual “Lunch and Laughs with a Legal Legend” was held in October when judges, lawyers and leaders from West Virginia University and statewide groups honored WVU College of Law Professor and WVU President Emeritus David C. Hardesty, Jr. with a “friendly roast”.
The proceeds from this excellent event were divided between Professor Hardesty’s worthwhile charitable activity of scholarships for College of Law students and the Bar Foundation’s grants program to improve the administration of justice and the provision of legal services for West Virginia’s citizens. The final amount distributed was approximately $25,000.
Pictured above are Professor Hardesty and WVU Law School Dean Joyce McConnell as the Professor presented the contribution from the roast to the scholarship fund during a recent meeting of the Law School’s Development Council in Morgantown.
The Bar Foundation Board of Directors has selected the members of the 2012 class of Bar Foundation Fellows. This year’s group of seventeen lawyers and three members of the judiciary joins 223 lawyers and 32 judges, who have been previously selected as Bar Foundation Fellows.
The Annual Reception and Dinner to honor the 2012 class will be held on Thursday, April 26, at the Marriott Hotel in Charleston. The well attended black tie optional event begins at 6:30PM and the cost is $125 per person or $1,250 for a table of ten persons.
