ABA LSD Antitrust Liaisons

American Bar Association Law Student Division Liaisons to the Section of Antitrust Law


Tempus Fugit

I have to say yesterday's Opening Assembly was a great program! It opened with a beautiful performance by students from the Kamehameha School Concert Glee Club and Hawaiian Ensemble. Local Hawaii Bar member Kahikino Noa Dettweiler also performed a welcome chant. Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle and Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann gave attendees a warm Aloha ahead of the keynote address by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. We all received reminder bookmarks of Justice Kennedy's "suggestions" for defining "The Rule of Law" he made in his remarks. You can catch some of the audio/video from Justice Kennedy's speech and other events here.

Afterwards, members had the chance to attend a few receptions in and between the Royal Hawaiian, Sheraton, and Halekulani along Waikiki Beach. It was a beautiful setting to meet with fellow attendees while enjoying some delicious food and drinks. And who says you can't take care of business in paradise?

This morning we have a busy schedule of programs ahead of one of my favorite events, the 16th Annual Margaret Brent Women Lawyers of Achievement Luncheon. Afterwards, the AT Council will have its final meeting for this bar year at the Halekulani.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to stay afterwards for some more events, including the Judicial Division's Annual Reception in Honor of the Judiciary and the closing International Law Section's Reception. Duke University School of Law and The John Marshall Law School also have alumni receptions scheduled for this evening.

There are more events planned for tomorrow and Tuesday, of course, ahead of the House of Delegates meeting. You can catch those highlights in the ABA Journal's Daily Reports.

It has been my pleasure reporting from Honolulu on AM activities of interest to LSD & AT members. I have truly enjoyed serving as your liaison and look forward to continuing to work with the AT's membership committee during the next bar year.

Mahalo and Alooooooooooooooooha :-)
