The Atlanta Lawyer October 2013 : Page 5

president’s Message What, if anything, did I learn from the adventures of this day? Despite my liberal arts education, my law degree, and what I thought was a wealth of worldly experience, I found that I was ignorant and unprepared for the diverse clients I was trying to serve. I had some learning and some growing to do. For I believe that in order to truly serve, we must first seek to understand. I am grateful to former Atlanta Bar President Seth Kirschenbaum for creating the Multi Bar Leadership Council, a consortium of the leaders of 15 bar associations and the State Bar of Georgia’s Diversity Program in metro Atlanta representing many of the diverse groups of lawyers serving our city. Formed in the aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy, the MBLC has fostered cooperation and understanding among lawyers by celebrating the strength of this city’s growing diversity. In this way we hope to continue to learn from each other so that we can better serve our clients and each other. 1 The names have been changed to protect client privacy.
