The Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association (BWBA) held its monthly Lunch with a Judge program on Wednesday, but this time, it sat down with all of the judges from the Appellate Division, Second Department.

The event gives members of BWBA an opportunity to meet and get to know judges in and around Brooklyn. Wednesday’s event was also an opportunity for BWBA to thank Justice Randall T. Eng, presiding justice of the Appellate Division, who is set to retire at the end of the year.

“It has my privilege to host Lunch with a Judge and conduct various swearing-ins, inductions and programs here at the Appellate Division, Second Department,” Eng said. “We are a part of the Brooklyn court community and we take this opportunity to introduce our judges.”

Eng has been a BWBA regular over the years, explaining that he has been influenced by his family, including his two daughters and two sisters, in his passion for helping female attorneys.

“I’m very proud to have associated with an organization that does such good deeds,” said Eng. “I have no brother, I have no sons. I have two daughters and two sisters, one of whom is a lawyer. So I’m inclined towards advancing women in the law.”

Michele Mirman, BWBA president, presented Eng with an award as a way to thank him for the work he has done with the association.

“You’ve consistently been a true, concerned friend to the Brooklyn Women’s Bar,” Mirman said. “Your attention and graciousness has brought honor and importance to us.

“I know that it is not only because you are surrounded by women at home, and now at work — 12 women on the Appellate Division — that you are sensitive to women’s issues,” Mirman continued. “Some people innately have insight and understanding, and it is clear you sincerely wish to ensure that women have a seat at every table.”
