Annual Meeting 2021: ABA President Refo passes gavel to her successor

Patricia Lee Refo passes the ceremonial gavel to Detroit lawyer Reginald M. Turner, who will become the 145thpresident of the American Bar Association.  

After Judge Denise Langford Morris administered the oath of office to him, Turner addresses the ABA House of Delegates, outlining a bright future for the ABA; pledging to promote diversity, equity and inclusion; as well as prioritizing public policy issues central to the administration of justice.

Turner takes the helm at the conclusion of the 2021 ABA Hybrid Meeting on Aug. 10, which provided attendees with both at-home and in-person sessions and activities.
