MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT ROD SNOW

2011 Fall Forum - Salt Lake City - November 17 - 18
A former client of mine who was a CEO of a well-known Utah company would often say, “A rising tide lifts all ships.” As we continue to increase our service to the community, including the poor and underprivileged, we will not only “lift” our community, we will lift the Bar and, ultimately, our individual practices.
“A [profession] refers to a group . . . pursuing a learned art as a common calling in the spirit of public service – no less a public service because it may incidentally be a means of a livelihood. Pursuit of the learned art in the spirit of public service is the primary purpose.” - Dean Roscoe Pound
Please make plans to join us at the Fall Forum the evening of Thursday, November 17th, and all day Friday, the 18th, at the Little America Hotel. On Thursday evening, we will be entertained and educated as we observe and participate in “A Mediation Tragedy” as presented by several of our notable mediators and actors. Friday, we will have cutting-edge breakout sessions and terrific key note speakers, Kerry Lee Chlarson and Stephen Mikita. They will offer their unique perspectives on the path to social justice. Mr. Chlarson, while an officer in the Marine Corps, was seriously burned in an automobile accident. After years of surgeries and physical therapy, Kerry enrolled in the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah, graduating in 1991. Kerry is an Administrative Law Judge for the Utah Labor Commission. Stephen Mikita was born with spinal muscular atrophy. He was the first wheelchair freshman in the history of Duke University and the first wheelchair student admitted to J. Reuben Clark Law School at BYU. Stephen is an Assistant Attorney General representing state agencies providing services for those with disabilities. His indomitable spirit and wisdom have touched and motivated many. The Forum will also feature a panel on 60 Legal Sites and Tips in 60 Minutes.
