Attorney General Eric Holder Speaks at the American Bar Association's National Pro Bono Summit
Friday, October 28, 2011
- The United States Department of Justice
Thank you, Mike [Pratt], for those kind words – and, especially, for your work in planning and preparing for this week’s summit. Without your vision and leadership – as well as the dedicated efforts of everyone on your team – this important event might never have gotten off the ground.
Thank you all for being part of this critical summit. It is a privilege to be included in this inaugural gathering and to join with so many distinguished leaders – and essential partners – in celebrating National Pro Bono Week.
I also want to thank my friends at the American Bar Association for their work – this week and throughout the year – to raise awareness about the power and importance of pro bono service; to ensure the strength and integrity of our justice system; and to remind every member of our nation’s legal community of the sacred responsibilities we share, as well as the challenges that – together – we must address and overcome.
