HSBA President Louise K.Y. Ing:
Let your voice be heard! There will be many opportunities this year for HSBA members to provide their comments on judicial appointments, proposed rules changes and legislation, so please take the time to write to us or testify. Your voice can make a difference.
The Governor will be making more appointments for Circuit Court judges, and the Chief Justice will be appointing District Court judges. With every appointment, you will be notified of your opportunity to provide information to HSBA on the candidate on a confidential basis.
The Supreme Court is proposing significant changes to the Hawaii Rules of Professional Conduct. Proposed changes have been written up in recent Bar Journal issues and on the www.hsba.org website. Please review and comment on these changes directly to the Supreme Court or to email@example.com.
Several bills are pending before the legislature of potential interest to HSBA members and our clients. They include bills relating to access to justice, nonprofit corporations, for-profit "public benefit" corporations, and more. Legislators want to hear from their constituents, so submit testimony, which can easily be done online these days.
Looking for a way to get involved with the Bar? Volunteer to chair or sit on one of HSBA’s committees or boards!
See the full list of opportunities here or call us at (808) 537-1868 for more information! We look forward to hearing from you!
YLD President Levi Hookano:
Happy Lunar New Year! Here we are in the second month of 2011 and the YLD is already in full swing. The high school mock trial program is progressing smoothly and planning is underway for our Law Week activities. The Mock Trial finals will be on March 12, 2011 from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. at the State Supreme Court building. The YLD welcomes Chief Justice Recktenwald who will be judging one of the final rounds of the competition.
Another major project being developed is civics education. Knowledge of civics is vitally important to society and the YLD would like to do its part. Please stay tuned for information on how you can help make Hawai‘i a better place to live for our parents, ourselves, and future generations.
I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce our two newest board members: Malcolm Barcarse and Ryan Hew. They bring fresh ideas and new perspectives to the YLD Board so that we may better serve you.
Stay in touch with us and feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The YLD is in its initial planning stages for Law Week events on every island and we'd like YOU to get involved! Find out ways to get involved by visiting the YLD webpage or by calling us at (808) 537-1868.
