About the Charles Evans Hughes Memorial Lecture
Since 1950, Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP has sponsored a lecture in conjunction with the New York County Lawyers Association on the ideals of public service and the education of lawyers and the public.
The series was instituted by NYCLA to honor Justice Hughes for his “devotion to the betterment of the law and the maintenance of its supremacy,” and “for his service as President of our Association where he endeared himself to us by his fine qualities of mind and heart, and as an inspiration to the members of our profession whose high ideals and noble traditions he upheld and strengthened throughout his long and distinguished career.”
The series has had speakers from the highest levels of the profession, including U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, U.S. Circuit Judge Denny Chin, NYS Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
