Elon Law's 2014 Martin Luther King, Jr. Forum Celebrating The Life of Julius Chambers

Chambers_juliusThank you to friend of the blog, Jon Harkavy, who forwarded information about a program in which he participated last week commemorating the life of Julius Chambers. 

Chambers, who passed away last year, was the foremost Title VII advocate in the country for many years and succeeded Thurgood Marshall and Jack Greenberg as the Director-Counsel at the Inc. Fund in New York.  Jon tells us that the program, sponsored by Elon Law School (Eric Fink and Jim Exum), was a spirited, joyful and personal glimpse of Chambers' life.  

Jon regrets, and so do I, that there was so little publicity about this event in advance, but Jon thought readers of this blog might want to know about this tribute to our colleague who played such a big role in what we do as employment lawyers and teachers.

A detailed remembrance of Mr. Chambers is available here.
