Annual Hawaii State Bar Association Dinner


The 2013 Hawaii State Bar Association Dinner will be held on Saturday, August 24, at the Hawaii Convention Center. The dinner is sponsored by the Hawaii State Bar Foundation (HSBF). 

The dinner theme for this year is "The Spirit of Aloha" in honor of the late Senator Daniel K. Inouye and retired Senator Daniel K. Akaka. Both will be acknowledged at the dinner for their contributions to Hawai’i and our nation.

Senator Inouye gave generations of Hawaii attorneys a chance to serve in Washington D.C. and instilled in these fortunate individuals his deep sense of commitment to public service, high standards of work ethic, and respect for the law. This year would have marked the 60th year of Senator Inouye’s membership in the Hawaii Bar. 

Senator Akaka, while not a member of the HSBA, contributed immeasurably to our State as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and as a U.S. Senator for more than two decades. As a U.S. Army veteran, an educator, and public school administrator, he embodies the HSBA’s goal of civility in the pursuit of justice and fairness. 

Proceeds support education and access to justice projects. Proceeds from the dinner will benefit the Supreme Court Oral Argument Project, which enables private and public school students to attend oral arguments of the Hawai’i Supreme Court, similar to the innovative oral arguments and question and answer forums that the Court held in 2012 at Farrington High School and Baldwin High School. Events are being planned for Hilo, Kona and Kauai by the Chief Justice and the Court. The Project is part of an effort to educate students about the role of the judiciary in our government.

Proceeds from the dinner will also be used to provide financial assistance to legal service providers for their respective projects and activities. Prior recipients include the Access to Justice Rooms on Oahu and the Self Help Centers on the Neighbor Islands, the September 11th Fund organized by the Hawaii Community Foundation, the Children's Advocacy Center, Hina Mauka, and Ka Hale Hoala Hou No Na Wahine, a transitional residence program.
