Andrew J. Benchoff, Franklin County Bar Association’s president said “The Annual Admissions Ceremony of the Franklin County Bar Association is a time-honored tradition. The ceremony brings the Association’s membership together to introduce and welcome all new admittees to our membership, Court staff, and the Judges of the 39th Judicial District. It was wonderful to get back to having the ceremony in person this year, following a year with no in-person ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
