Ruth Bader Ginsburg symposium highlights event

GREENSBORO, NC – Smith Moore LLP attorney Lisa Garrison recently participated in the North Carolina Bar Association's (NCBA) continuing legal education program, "The Changing Face of Justice: A View from the Bench."  The event featured a symposium led by Associate U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Garrison joined fellow attorneys Sheila Chavis and Camille Payton, along with NC Court of Appeals Judge Linda Stephens and panel moderator Leslie O'Toole, in a presentation on strategies for successful depositions.  The panel explored the use of depositions at motion hearings and trials and offered tips for winning strategies.  "This event was truly a historic gathering for the North Carolina Bar Association," Garrison remarked.  "I feel honored to have been included as a program panelist, and to have had the opportunity to offer my personal insights into deposition strategies and tactics."

The event brought together former and current female chief justices from throughout the nation.  Sponsored by the NCBA's Women in the Profession Committee, the program focused on current issues facing the judiciary, changes in the criminal justice system, and topics in professionalism.

Female chief justices from the highest court in every state were invited.  In addition to the appearance by Justice Ginsburg, current state Supreme Court chief justices Mary Mullarkey (Colorado), Kay McFarland (Kansas) and Jean Hoefer Toal (South Carolina) were among the nearly 500 in attendance.
