On Friday, April 27, the State Bar of Arizona hosted a Phoenix ribbon-cutting for its newly configured first-floor offices. Included in the event was the dedication of the new Daniel J. McAuliffe CLE Center, named for a former Bar President and ethics expert.

(Here is my 2007 profile of the inestimable Dan McAuliffe when he became State Bar President, as well as a story I wrote when he died in 2010.)

In this post are a few photos of the event (all photos are by Bob Rink). The full set is available on the Arizona Attorney Magazine Facebook page.
