The Challenge
The newsletter of the ISBA’s Standing Committee on Racial and Ethnic Minorities and the Law

November 2002, vol. 13, no. 2

Letter to the editor

As all of you know, this Committee sponsors the luncheon held during the Mid-Year meeting in December. The luncheon this time will be held on Thursday December 12, 2002 and we expect a record number of attendees. We are thrilled to be able to present three wonderful speakers for the luncheon, our Supreme Court Justice Mary Ann McMorrow, as well as rival candidates Justice Sue Myerscough and Justice Rita Garman. The latter two will have found out the winner of their race prior to the luncheon, but have both agreed to speak about their own experiences and struggles as women in the legal profession.

This issue of the Challenge features short biographies on all of our speakers, as further incentive to mark your calendars and purchase your tickets to this luncheon. Please contact Richard Porter, Chair of the Luncheon Committee, with any questions about the luncheon you may have and we hope you can join us on the 12th!
