Montana lawyer Robert Carlson, who will be ABA president in 2018-2019, addresses the House of Delegates on Aug. 15 during the Annual Meeting in New York.
“We need to continue to lead the effort to regain the public’s trust in the judicial system and to make sure that our courts are open, accessible and fair to all. We need to ensure that the protection of the law is available to everyone,” said Carlson. “Our justice system, the entire system, must look like the nation we live in. Justice must be available to everyone, and justice must look like everyone.”
