This week, the International Society of Barristers (ISOB) inducted John Day as a fellow. The ISOB is dedicated to preservation of the adversary system, the right to jury trial and an independent judiciary. Membership is by invitation only and includes a rigorous screening process involving both judges and fellow lawyers. The ISOB extends membership to those lawyers “of exceptional talent, whose qualities including integrity, honor and collegiality embody the spirit of the true professional”. Of course, those of us at the Law Offices of John Day have always known that John possesses these traits but we are certainly pleased that the prestigious ISOB has recognized it as well. Congratulations, John!
