Chicago’s legal community gave a warm welcome to the city’s new Mayor on May 29, 2019, at the All Bar Reception honoring Lori Lightfoot. A standing-room-only crowd heard from Mayor Lightfoot about her priorities to quell the city’s violence and restore integrity to government. A former partner at Mayer Brown and a member of the CBA’s Board of Managers, she also spoke of her passion for the law and the importance of the legal community’s role in helping to bring change to city government. “I know that I will be looking to many of you right here in this room to help solve some of our city’s greatest challenges,” Lightfoot told the crowd.
