The Glynn County Bar Association, Glynn County Chamber of Commerce, Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and the College of Coastal Georgia recently hosted a Law Week luncheon at Epworth By The Sea.
This was the first ever joint celebration of Law Day with these community partners.
Chief Justice Carol Huntstein of the Georgia Supreme Court was the guest speaker and reflected on this year's Law Day theme, "No Courts, No Justice, No Liberty."
