The Standing Committee on Government Lawyers is again hosting a reception as part of the ISBA's Mid-Year Meeting Activities. The reception, entitled "Pride in Our Profession: The ISBA Salutes Government Attorneys," is intended to recognize the efforts of, and to provide a networking opportunity for, those attorneys who maintain a government practice. The reception will be held on Wednesday, December 11, 2002, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the ISBA's Chicago Regional Office, 20 South Clark Street, Suite 900.

Last year more than 100 government attorneys were in attendance, including: Hon. Marvin Aspen, Chief Judge of the Northern District of Illinois; Carole A. Doris, Chief Deputy Attorney General for Illinois; Mary Robinson, Administrator of the Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission; Dick Devine, Cook County State's Attorney; John Piland, Champaign County State's Attorney; and Jim Reilly, Director of the Department of Administrative Hearings for the City of Chicago.

If you are employed by an office, agency or unit of federal, state or local government or if you spend a substantial portion of your private practice representing governmental entities, please join us for refreshments and socializing with your fellow governmental practitioners as the ISBA salutes our efforts by honoring this important part of the profession. For further information, contact Janet Sosin in the ISBA's Chicago Regional Office at 312/726-8775.
