Michael Bowes QC, co-chair of the London chapter of the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) International Section and joint Head of Outer Temple Chambers, is to host a Meet & Greet reception in London, together with Michael Miller, President of The New York State Bar Association. The reception is part of a programme of events this year for New York-based attorneys in both Dublin and London.
With members located in 130 countries around the world, the NYSBA is the largest voluntary state bar organisation, representing thousands of lawyers globally. Their International Section chapter in London, UK is one of over 70 NYSBA chapters worldwide.
For more than 140 years, the NYSBA has been the voice of the legal profession in New York State. Their mission is to shape the development of law, educate and inform the public and respond to the demands of a diverse and ever-changing legal profession. NYSBA advocates for state and federal legislation and works tirelessly to promote equal access to justice for all.
Over the years, Mr Miller, President NYSBA, has developed award-winning pro bono programmes recognised by NYSBA, New York State Conference of Bar Leaders (NYSCBL) and the American Bar Association (ABA). Among his many awards, he received the ABA’s Pro Bono Publico Award, its highest award for pro bono service, for his leading role in the legal relief efforts in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
Beyond bar activities, Mr Miller served as an election supervisor in war-torn Bosnia and interviewed Kosovo refugees for evidence of war crimes. Read more here.
