We rarely get invited to anything intentionally, but somehow this arrived in our email in box:
THIS THURSDAY March 27, 2008 @ 6:00 PM
THE HISTORICAL MUSEUM OF MIAMI
101 West Flagler Street
Call 305-375-1619 for details.
Please accept this invitation to attend the 11th Judicial Circuit Historical Society’s Second Annual Reception. Besides good food, drink, and company, we plan to unveil our second magazine.
Don’t forget, the 11thJCHS is now accepting nominations for the 2008 Legal Legends awards. Please nominate anyone you think is deserving of being honored as a Legal Legend. You can even submit your nominations on-line. Click HERE to download a PDF form or fill in an on-line nomination form.
We look forward to seeing you at the reception.
The Board of Trustees of the 11th Judicial Circuit Historical Society
Rumpole says: those wild and crazy lawyers at the 11th Circuit Historical Society are at it again. It's "party party party" with those guys all the time.
This is the organization that honored our dear and departed friend Sy Gaer with a "Legal Legends" award, and we can tell you Sy was touched beyond words to be included with the likes of Janet Reno and other Miami Legal Legands.
This is a great organization. For you young lawyers, do you know who the Justice Building is named after? Do you ever wonder what it was like to practice law in the wild 1970's and cash crazy 1980's? How about the prosecution of Al Capone or the man who tried to assasinate President Roosevelt? Or the judicial scandals before there was "courtbroom"?
Judge Scott Silverman who founded this organization has all the answers and more. Attend the event; have a good time; and as we used to say where we grew up "Maybe someone will learn you something."
UPDATE: We forgot to mention that non-members will have to pay a sawbuck to hobnob with the members. I think we applied last year but were told that at the time they were not accepting applications from anonymous bloggers.
