BUSINESS BRIEFS: New speaker set for Friday Law Day luncheon … and other items

PORT ANGELES — Clallam-Jefferson County Pro Bono Lawyers has scheduled a new speaker for its annual celebration of Law Day from noon to 1 p.m. Friday.

Kellye Testy, the dean of the University of Washington Law School, who was originally set to speak at the meeting, is unable to make it, organizers said.

Instead, Professor John McKay of the University of Washington Law School will speak at the lunch at Kokopelli Grill, 203 E. Front St.

This event is free and open to the public.

The meal costs $20.

McKay will address the Law Day theme, “The 14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy.”

The event is part of a national observance of the rule of law and is held to honor the two counties’ bar associations’ volunteer pro bono lawyers.

Two local attorneys will be honored and receive the lawyers’ Volunteer Lawyer of the Year award.

Port Townsend lawyer Colette Kostelec, the association’s vice president, and Stephanie Hyatt, president of the Clallam County Bar Association, will preside at the event.

Law Day observance was created decades ago by the American Bar Association and then-President Dwight Eisenhower to promote the rule of law and counter the military and arms display of the then-communist Soviet Union, according to a news release.
