Your Bar invites you to join your colleagues at this lunch meeting to eat, socialize and hear from J.D. DuPuy, MCB Member and author of Poetic Justice: Legal Humor in Verse. Mr. DuPuy will share excerpts from his work, including a handful of his humorous poems and insight into the process. We hope you can join us for this lighthearted luncheon and to network with fellow Bar members!

 

A partner in a Charlotte, North Carolina, law firm, JD DuPuy has been living and observing every funny, strange, and torturous element of the law firm lifestyle for 15 years. He is a graduate of the Mecklenburg County Bar Leadership Institute and provides pro bono services to non-profit entities such as Habitat for Humanity. Over the course of his legal career, he has worked in many areas of practice, including general litigation, estate planning and administration, real estate and local government law.

 

Poetic Justice: Legal Humor in Verse offers “100 pages of vignettes from life in the practice of law, rendered as wryly humorous poems. Each one stands alone as the sort of snapshot one lawyer might forward along to another for a laugh or a knowing nod.”

 

TIME: 12:15 - 1:15 p.m. (doors open at 12 p.m.)
LOCATION:  Mecklenburg County Bar & Foundation Center – Event Hall (2850 Zebulon Ave., Charlotte, NC 28208)
