I am so very honored to announce that I have been named to the Fellows of the American Bar Foundation, an honorary organization of lawyers, judges, law faculty, and legal scholars whose public and private careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the highest principles of the legal profession and to the welfare of their communities. Membership in the Fellows is limited to one percent of lawyers licensed to practice in each jurisdiction. Members are nominated by their peers and elected by the Board of the American Bar Foundation. The Fellows support the research of the American Bar Foundation through annual contributions and sponsor seminars and events of direct relevance to the legal profession. The independent, nonprofit American Bar Foundation seeks to advance the understanding and improvement of law through research projects on the most pressing issues facing the legal system in the United States and the world.
