Eileen D. Millett Mentioned in “Reap the Benefits of a Bar Association”

New York Law Journal

Eileen D. Millett, Counsel in the Litigation and Health Care and Life Sciences practices, was mentioned in an article titled "Reap the Benefits of a Bar Association."

Following is an excerpt:

A true legal education never stops - the raw knowledge and skills that a lawyer acquires in law school get tested, refined and absorbed in the process of practicing law. The ultimate goal is the wisdom and skill in the effective use of the law in the real world, which are acquired only through experience and a continuation of the learning process.

We devoted the September 2013 issue of our Bar Journal as well as portions of every State Bar News to the topic. At our Annual Meeting in January, our Presidential Summit focused on "Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers" and "Supporting Today's Lawyers." In May, the Association and the New York State Judicial Institute on Professionalism in the Law sponsored a day-long Convocation on "The Coming Changes to Legal Education: Ensuring Professional Values."

Our standing Committee on Legal Education and Admission to the Bar is currently co-chaired by Eileen Millett (Epstein Becker & Green) and Touro Law School Dean Patricia Salkin.

The committee's debates about how to make attorneys "practice ready," for example, have helped to identify ways that the State Bar Association can contribute to the professional development of future attorneys, newly-admitted attorneys and all practicing attorneys.
