PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

I am honored and feel privileged to be the 28th president of D. Augustus Straker Bar Association. As a first-generation American and daughter of Caribbean parents, I immediately identified with David Augustus Straker on reading his biography and wish to preserve his legacy. I also feel that we all have an obligation to support those that are newly entering the legal profession, our community, and our pre-existing brothers and sisters in the law. This obligation is represented by the three sides of the Straker Bar logo, which align with Straker Bar’s commitment to the students, the community, and the membership. 

As part of this commitment, we are starting a “Shoulders of Giants” series. This series originates from the quote “If I can see further, it is because I stand on the shoulders of giants.” Through this series, we will build on and preserve the history and knowledge of our “giants” in the law through a series of events that connect seasoned legal professionals in our membership with newer members of the bar in our membership, so that we can all learn from each other and grow stronger as a professional body.
