The nominee for president-elect of the American Bar Association is Stephen N. Zack, a partner in the law firm of Boies, Schiller and Flexner, and a member of the Section Council for the ABA Section of International Law. He is a Cuban-American who has practiced law in Miami for more than 35 years, said he also plans to convene a commission to focus on Hispanic legal rights, including immigration, voting and consumer rights.
He is a former Chair of the ABA House of Delegates (a very prestigious position within the ABA) and is a former member of the Board of Governors, He is also a former president of the Florida State Bar and a former president of the National Conference of Bar Presidents.
I have known Steve for many years and am very happy to see that he will become President of the American Bar Association. If elected at the ABA Annual Meeting in Chicago in August, he will begin his one-year term as president in August 2010.
