Federal Judge Dee Benson Will Speak at Law Day 2001 Luncheon at the Grand America Hotel
The Utah State Bar and guests will recognize Law Day 2001 on May 1st, highlighted by a luncheon at 12:00 noon at the new Grand America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City.
The Honorable Chief Judge Dee V. Benson, United States District Court for the District of Utah, will be the key note speaker. Judge Benson has served on the Federal bench since 1991 when he was appointed by President Bush. Prior to that, Judge Benson served as legal counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee from 1984 to 1986, as Senator Orrin Hatch’s Chief of Staff from 1986 to 1988, and as United States Attorney from 1989 to 1991. For Law Day 2001, Judge Benson is expected to speak on the origins of Law Day. Judge Benson is always a popular speaker whose comments are certain to educate as well as entertain.
The luncheon will be sponsored in part by Lexis-Nexis and held at the soon-to-open Grand America Hotel. The Grand America will be the first five-star hotel in Salt Lake City. Although the hotel will not be fully operational and open until later in the summer, this event will be one of the very first opportunities the public will have to see the hotel.
Awards will be presented to members of the legal community as well as to high school students chosen as winners of the Law in the Community essay and art competitions.
