Bar Seeks Candidates for Global Legal Practice Committee

October 1, 2018

The D.C. Bar Board of Governors is seeking lawyer and non-lawyer candidates for appointment to the new standing Global Legal Practice Committee. Appointments to the committee will be for one-year or two-year terms.  

The deadline to apply is Friday, October 5.  

The Global Legal Practice Committee studies issues arising from globalization in the practice of law that have a significant impact on law practice for members of the District of Columbia Bar and for the Bar as an organization. Among other issues, the committee studies, monitors and addresses issues arising from changing models for obtaining and delivering legal services in the United States and abroad, including alternative legal services providers and business structures, and multi-disciplinary practice (MDP). Such issues may also include regulatory innovations for the public protection of consumers of legal services and the legal profession overall. The committee consists of 11 active members of the D.C. Bar and two non-lawyer professionals. 

To apply for this opening, please submit a resume and a cover letter describing relevant work or volunteer experience. Leadership experience with D.C. Bar committees, voluntary bar associations or the Bar’s Communities (formerly Sections) is highly desirable.
