1st Latino Chancellor To Be Honored By PA Bar

PHILADELPHIA -- The city's outside chill will get an old-fashioned warm-touch antidote on Wednesday, Jan. 5, when a record number of handshakes are exchanged at the Philadelphia Bar Association's annual Chancellor's Reception from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt at The Bellevue, Broad and Walnut Streets, in Philadelphia.

The honoree, Rudolph Garcia – the first Hispanic Chancellor in the bar association's 209-year history – won't be complaining even though he'll be at the head of the line the entire time, pumping as many as 13 hands per minute. Garcia is a shareholder at the law firm of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC.

This is the event at which even the city's busiest and most successful legal luminaries patiently wait in a long line to wish their leader and each other good luck in the year ahead. At times, the line of nearly 1,000 well-wishers will flow through the ballroom foyer, around corridors, past meeting rooms and down to the escalator that leads guests up to the ballroom level.
