Celli Appointed to City Bar Task Force on Young Lawyers

  • July 16, 2012

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.
