What he brings as the president of the National Conference of Bar Presidents is a vision of the future of the legal profession.
Fairfield, Connecticut (PRWEB) September 29, 2011
Frederic Ury of the Connecticut law firm Ury & Moskow LLC was recently chosen to lead the National Conference of Bar Presidents (NCBP). "He's very visionary," says Roseanne T. Lucianek, director of the American Bar Association's Division for Bar Services, of Mr. Ury. "What he brings as the president of the National Conference of Bar Presidents is a vision of the future of the legal profession."
Extensive leadership experience, frequent speaking engagements on such topics as ethics and civil procedure and more than 30 years experience as an attorney have inspired several areas of focus for Mr. Ury’s tenure with the NCBP. Among his primary concerns is the lack of opportunity he feels is available to the thousands of new lawyers who graduate from law school each year and struggle to find jobs.
To qualify, a NCBP president must have served in a number of other executive roles and received approval from other leaders in the legal community. Fred Ury is a past president of the Connecticut Bar Association and is the first of this position to lead NCBP since 1952. Mr. Ury is a member of the American Bar Association (ABA) House of Delegates and the ABA Commission on Ethics 20/20.
Throughout its more than 60 year history, the National Conference of Bar Presidents has provided information and training to state and local bar associate leaders. Specifically, the organization provides high-quality programming to current bar leaders through two meetings. During these semiannual meetings, presentations and workshops are provided which focus on “bread and butter” topics and issues like membership expansion, continuing education, access to justice, provision of legal services, community outreach and education, diversity, finance and current subjects.
