our nation's solemn pledge of 'justice for all' is alive

REMEMBERING JUDGE JAMES ROBERTSON
The D.C. Bar is mourning the loss of Judge James
Robertson, who served on the U.S. District Court for
the District of Columbia for 15 years and was president of the Bar from 1991 to 1992. During his tenure
as president, Robertson advocated for increased
diversity in the legal profession, challenging law
firms to provide more opportunities for minority
attorneys. Judge Robertson passed away on
September 7 at age 81.
