ABA President Calls on Legal Profession to Lead

Tags: Business & Community, 2006

Michael Greco, the president of the American Bar Association, gave the keynote address at the commencement ceremony marking McGeorge's 82nd academic year on May 13 in Sacramento.

Greco warned about the threats to judicial independence coming from special interest groups and political parties that seek to force judges to decide cases on popular opinion, not the law. He also noted the key role lawyers have played in the building of our American society and called on the profession to continue to lead.
