The following remarks were made by Thurston R. Moore, chairman of the executive committee of Hunton & Williams, at a Charlottesville, Va., reception on April 12 in honor of the law school student volunteers who participated in the Hunton & Williams — UVA School of Law Pro Bono Partnership during the 2006-07 school term. The students assisted Hunton & Williams pro bono lawyers in representation of victims of domestic violence as well as immigrants seeking asylum from persecution in their countries of origin.

It would be difficult to be in Charlottesville and not think of Thomas Jefferson. It would be equally difficult not at least to mention his name when talking about the subject of our reception this afternoon, namely, service by lawyers.
