If you missed the LLOPS meeting last week, this blog post (and its embedded cuteness) may serve as consolation.
Molly B (a Courthouse Dog) with LLOPS member, Mary Whisner
Foster Pepper hosted the meeting and invited Celeste Walsen, DVM and Ellen O’Neill-Stephens, JD of the Courthouse Dogs Foundation to speak to LLOPS members with their courthouse dog, Molly B. Their presentation covered how Ellen O’Neill-Stephens came up with the Courthouse Dogs Foundation and its touching impact across the country and beyond! The Courthouse Dogs Foundation was recently nominated for a HiiL ( Hague Institute for the Internationalisation of Law) Innovating Justice Award - winners will be announced next month!
