Dec 02, 2008 Party on, Wayne
Winter professional holiday party invitations are coming from left and right. Some of the parties are interesting, but some are less exciting than the tax-deductible one Rick Moranis planned in Ghostbusters.
One holiday party that will be both entertaining and good for social justice is the December 9 party in Baltimore by Civil Justice Network. Civil Justice Network is a public interest group that has found a way to involve small and solo law practitioners simultaneously to do good and well. The party will be in Baltimore City, which is a John Watersesque city of non-stop entertainment any time of year, including in such places as Hampden and Fells Point.
As I have learned from CJ, everyone is invited to the party: Non-lawyers and lawyers; those litigating on our side and against us; and everyone else. Here is the invitation. I look forward to seeing you there. Jon Katz.
