We are pleased to share with you that Sang Joo Kim
and Seon Mi Sim were, today, invited guests of Gabriel L I Bevilacqua, Esquire,
Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association at the Bar Association's October
Quarterly Meeting and Luncheon and a pre-luncheon reception in the Ballroom Balcony
Foyer of the Park Hyatt.
The Hon Majorie O Rendell, US Circuit Court of Appeals
Judge, and The Hon James R Melinson, Chief US Magistrate Judge of the US District
Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, were presented with the Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor Award and the Justice William J Brennan Award, respectively,
for their outstanding achievements.
Judge Rendell was honoured not just for her
superior legal ability and leadership but also for her work in furthering the advancement
of women in both the profession and the community. As a member of the federal bench
and as First Lady of Pennsylvania, Judge Rendell exemplifies the qualities of Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor.
In his remarks, Governor Ed Rendell amusingly confided that
his secret of success is "Yes, dear".
Chief Judge Melinson was saluted for his
distinguished career and impressive accomplishments as he serves in the tradition
of Justice Brennan.
In celebrating the occasion, Amy Gutmann, the new President
of the University of Pennsylvania, keynoted the Luncheon with her impassioned message.
Also of note was Lisa Scottoline, best-selling author and Philadelphia lawyer,
signed copies of her new book Killer Smile.
Chancellor Bevilacqua was recently
named ICAS Fellow.
