Our theme for the evening was "Making Waves", in recognition of those who have made profound impact on the legal profession and in the community at large by going against the grain, and making splashes and waves within the bar and in the community. They do so through their leadership, commitment and support as courageous pioneers in their respective fields, dedicated role models to the following generations, and invaluable bridges to the community at large.
