Celli Appointed to City Bar Task Force on Young Lawyers

Association of the Bar of the City of New York President Carey Dunne has appointed ECBAWM partner Andrew G. Celli, Jr. to his blue-ribbon Task Force on “New Lawyers in a Changing Profession.” The Task Force will study what Bar President Dunne calls “the plight of young lawyers,” as employment opportunities for newly minted attorneys shrink and long-term prospects in the profession seem uncertain. Mr. Celli will serve alongside a distinguished roster of members of the New York Bar, including Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance; Corporation Counsel Michael Cardozo; Columbia Law Dean David Schizer; Skadden Arps Executive Partner Eric J. Friedman; Paul Weiss Chairman Brad S. Karp; Legal Aid Society Attorney-in-Chief Steven Banks; Legal Services Executive Director Raun J. Rasmussen; and General Counsel to the Bank of New York Jane Sherburne. The Task Force will convene in September 2012 and is expected to issue a report in one year’s time.
