On Wednesday, representatives of Memphis’ legal community will gather at Calvary Episcopal Church Downtown at noon to honor the memory of 30 lawyers and judges who died during the past year.
It’s part of Law Week, the local industry’s yearly observance and celebration of all things law in Memphis.
From an email this afternoon from the Memphis Bar Association:
“Families and friends of the honorees are invited, and they are always appreciative of those from the legal community who join them in remembering their loved one. It makes them feel like their loved one was part of a profession that valued him or her and that their contributions to that community have not and will not be forgotten. Additionally, attending this service is an indication that you believe in something bigger than the day-to-day ‘busyness’ of the law—that it is still a profession, that we are bound together by our common membership in the ‘legal club,’ and that it is important to take time to remember and honor those who are no longer with us.
The service lasts only 30 minutes, and there is a reception following in the Great Hall where you can mingle with judges, attorneys and family members and enjoy a light lunch.”
