The BCBA executive committee is pleased to announce the creation of the Black Lawyers Committee, chaired by Robin Winn. Robin is a Columbia native, graduate of the Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge, and a recent recipient of the NAACP Trail Blazer Award for Outstanding Accomplishment.
An initial goal of the Black Lawyers Committee is to encourage local black lawyers to rededicate and recommit themselves to being active participants of the bar. The BCBA needs a strong and vibrant membership to improve our profession, eliminate bias, and advance the rule of law. If you know any attorneys who might like to join this committee, please have them contact Robin at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 314-335-0067.
The first event of the Black Lawyers Committee will be a ‘meet and greet’ from 4:30 – 5:30 pm, on April 25th, at the Boone County Historical Society (immediately prior to the Bench-Bar). All BCBA attorneys are welcome to attend this inaugural event.
