Mary Curtis

Our nation’s annual Law Day celebration reminds us of the importance of a citizen’s right to vote, and leads us to reflect on the challenges that our nation still faces to ensure this right for all Americans.  This year, we will celebrate Law Day with the theme American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters as we approach the anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act.


We are pleased to announce that Mary C. Curtis, award-winning multimedia journalist, will provide the keynote address. She appears weekly on TV’s WCCB News Rising Charlotte and contributes to The Washington Post “She the People” blog, NPR and was a national correspondent for AOL’s, covering politics, race and culture.


The Mecklenburg County Bar’s mission is to serve the public and the Bar members in improving and preserving the administration of justice with goals to advance public education in the community on legal issues, the Bar and the legal system, and to promote the administration of justice.   The MCB’s Law Day Luncheon is one of our legal community’s main vehicles for putting the MCB's mission into action.


In keeping with Mecklenburg County Bar's Law Day tradition, we will present the Liberty Bell Award to a non-lawyer who has served our public and legal community in immeasurable ways over the years. We will also honor the local high-school winner of the Charlotte Observer Law Day essay contest.
