Responding to “a need for civility and open demonstrations of all kinds of people working together and putting politics aside, doing our jobs and helping the community,” the Atlanta Multi-Bar Leadership Council is being revived, said Atlanta Bar Association president Emily Ward.

On June 28, leaders from a range of bar groups met over lunch at Greenberg Traurig, where the council’s meetings will be held this year. The council is not a new entity but one that is being revived after fading during the pandemic, Ward said.
