NYSBA NEWS RELEASE

New York State Bar Association President David P. Miranda, who was formally inaugurated on Saturday during a meeting of the Association’s House of Delegates in Cooperstown, called on the state government and the legal community to do more to close “the justice gap.”
Moments after former New York State Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye administered the ceremonial oath of office, Miranda reminded House members of the concluding words of the Pledge of Allegiance that they had recited earlier that morning.
“Those last words of that pledge are: ‘with liberty and justice for all,’” he said. “Our Association gives life to these words. Everything we do from our legislative agenda, to the hours we put into our substantive reports, to the hard work in our sections and committees, to the debate in this great House about how we can better this great state of ours, we give life to these words.”
