WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Vice president Joe Biden is in Wilmington on Friday to receive an award from the legal community for his public service.
Biden has been chosen to receive a lifetime achievement award from the Delaware Barristers Association during an event Friday night at the Hotel du Pont in Wilmington.
The barristers association is an affiliate of the National Bar Association, an advocacy group for black lawyers.
Association officials say Biden is being recognized for his lifelong commitment to liberty and justice for all.
