On September 17, the ACS honored its 2014 Keeping Faith with the Constitution honorees at its New York Constitution Day Luncheon. The honorees were Debo P. Adegbile of WilmerHale and Gregory B. Craig of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.
During the luncheon Christine A. Varney of Cravath, Swaine & Moore and member of the National Board of Directors for the American Constitution Society moderated a discussion with the honorees. Caroline Fredrickson, President of the American Constitution Society provided an introduction.
The event featured a candid discussion between our honorees on the value of pro bono work and government service, highlighting what is at stake for lawyers who represent unpopular clients and why the legal community must publicly support lawyers who take on these challenging cases.
