President’s Reception Brings Bar Together

On Friday, September 7th, 28th Judicial District Bar President James Kilbourne hosted a reception in the South Room of Pack’s Tavern to honor Jackie Grant, who is a member of the 28th Judicial District and the 124th President of the North Carolina Bar Association.

Lawyers and Judges joined President Kilbourne in congratulating Ms. Grant, who is a distinguished litigator and a partner with Roberts & Stevens. In 2014-15, Grant became the first African-American female to serve as president of the Buncombe County Bar which encompasses Buncombe County. She is also the second African-American female and third African-American overall to serve as president of the NCBA.

At the reception, members of our Bar traded “courtroom war stories” over drinks and appetizers immediately after the work week. The next President’s Reception is scheduled for November 2nd from 5-7pm.
