Chicago Bar Association Committees Meet to Discuss Transnational Probate
The Chicago Bar Association International and Foreign Law Committee held a joint meeting today with the Chicago Bar Association Probate Practice Committee to discuss the topic of "Death and Inheritance in an International Community." The program attracted a large audience -- something not surprising in a city that is proud of its immigrant heritage and international connections. The speakers were:
- Lynne R. Ostfeld, a Chicago-based attorney with an affiliated office in Paris France;
- Sandra Chiarlone, a lawyer in both Italy and the United States; and
- Edmund Gronkiewicz, of counsel at Reda Ciprian Magnone LLC, Chicago
Pictured here (from left to right) are Sandra Chiarlone of Genoa, Italy; Ramsey Senno, Vice Chair of the Chicago Bar Associaion International and Foreign Law Committee; Lynne Ostfeld, Chair of the Chicago Bar Association International and Foreign Law Committee; and former CBA International and Foreign Law Committee Chair Professor Mark Wojcik of The John Marshall Law School. The photo was taken by another Italian attorney, Stefano Viola.
Fun secret fact? Lynne and Mark competed together as law students in the Philip C. Jessup International Moot Court Competition.
