Midyear Meeting 2018: ABA president-elect nominee addresses House of Delegates

New Orleans lawyer Judy Perry Martinez, who became the ABA president-elect nominee on Feb. 5 during the ABA Midyear Meeting in Vancouver, speaks to House delegates.

Addressing the power of the collective voice of the ABA, Martinez said, “We must use that voice to trumpet the essential values of our democracy, so that practicing lawyers everywhere, and law students who will join our ranks, are proud to be members of the organization that stands up time and time again for the rule of law.”
