Commission's Midyear Prouram is
Dedicated to the memory of the
Honorable Thurood marshall                       I

On Sunday, January 24, 1993 the
most notable civil rights lawyer and
first black United States Supreme
Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall
passed away. Justice Marshall will
always be remembered for his
commitment to justice and equality.
As a student of the late Charles
Houston, Justice Marshall developed
legal skills to accompany his passion
for fairness. Without a doubt, Goal
IX is a reminder of the commitment
and the unfinished aspiration of
Justice Marshall.
Indeed, it was not only fitting that
the ABA Commission on
Opportunities for Minorities in the
Profession dedicate the Midyear

Meeting Program to justice Marshall,
but it was appropriate. The tribute
was only a prelude to the respect that
the entire profession will pay to
Justice Marshall.
The Commission submitted a
resolution to the ABA House of
Delegates (copy on page 8)
proclaiming the 1993 ABA Annual
Meeting in honor of Justice Marshall.
All meeting activities will cease for a
one minute moment of silence in
recognition of the many contributions
Justice Marshall made tn the legal
profession and the United States.
The Commission Midyear Meeting
Program took place on Saturday,
February 6, 1993 at the Hynes

Convention Center. It was a great
program and Boston was a great city
to have this program. Expanding
The Base - Employment Strategies forl
Minorities in the Legal Profession
was a proper theme for the program. I
Past ABA President John Curtin,
gave the welcome address for Boston, I
Elaine Epstein and Richard Soden
also welcomed the Commission to
Boston on behalf of the Massachusetts
and Boston Bar Associations,
respectively. Over 120 people
attended the program and luncheon
with a mixture of practicing lawyers,
judges and law students in
Session I addressed What is
Qualified or what is meant by
employers when they say they are
looking for qualified minority
candidates. Session II discussed
positions available after law school
and areas of practice that minority law
students may not have heard about in
law school. Wayne Budd, former
Associate Attorney General for the
United States and a partner at
Goodwin, Proctor & Hoar, gave the
luncheon address. His comments
reflected the wealth of experience and
knowledge chat he has obtained in his
career, Finally, the program ended
with Session III on Making Diversity


in your Environment.
The Midyear Meeting committee
did a wonderful job of planning the
meeting. Special thanks to Kay
Hodge, Carol Ross-Burnett and the
Massachusetts Bar Association for an
excellent program and enjoyable
reception. We would like to thank all
