I’m delighted—but also saddened—to be writing the last of four “Messages from the Chair” for The SciTech Lawyer. Any opportunity to communicate with you directly is a welcome one. It’s been terrific fun to serve as Chair, but it’s disappointing to be reminded that this bar year is already drawing to a close.
My previous messages focused upon three reasons that our colleagues tend to belong to a professional association: to look like a better lawyer, to affiliate with other lawyers, and to serve the legal profession. The fourth and final reason identified in last summer’s issue of The SciTech Lawyer involves “becoming a better lawyer.”
