Join Bates at the 2022 NYSBA Annual Meeting and Presidential Summit
Bates is proud to participate in the 2022 New York State Bar Association Annual Meeting and its marquee event, the Presidential Summit, on Thursday, January 20, 2022, from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Led by NYSBA President T. Andrew Brown (pictured above, L), the Summit will focus on two of the leading social justice and civil rights matters of the day: a reevaluation of the #MeToo Movement, and the intersection of transgender rights and sports. NY State Attorney General Letitia James (pictured above, R) will deliver the keynote address.
Bates Group Managing Director Susan Harper will moderate the first panel, "A Reassessment Of #MeToo: At A Critical Juncture in State & National History, Where Do We Truly Stand?" at 2:20 p.m. We hope you can join us!
