David Rapoport Co-Presenter at ABA National Specialization Round Table
May 30, 2015
Attorney David Rapoport, President of the National Board of Legal Speciality Certification, attorney Gary McNeil, Executive Director of the Texas Board of Legal Speciality Certification and Joan Eagle, a Chicago lawyer and current Chairperson of the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, co-presented at the ABA National Specialization Roundtable held in Denver, Colorado, last weekend. The topic of their presentation, Bringing Peel v. Illinois ARDC Non-Compliant States Back Into Compliance – How to get the attention of well-intentioned but unknowing regulators, included suggestions and a discussion about how those involved in legal specialty certification can work to have state-to-state regulation both more compliant with the First Amendment and overall more cordial to certification as a consumer-friendly credential.
The ABA’s annual National Specialization Roundtable is the only periodic networking event for all administrators and directors of specialty certification programs for lawyers in America.
