The Benefits of Joining a Bar Association

The AmLaw Litigation Daily featured two ALI members, Council member David W. Rivkin and member Donald F. Donovan, both of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, in the article “Tired? Busy? Hate Going to Meetings? These Debevoise Lawyers Show Why You Should Join a Bar Association Anyway.”

They, along with their Debevoise colleague Deborah Enix-Ross, describe why service on a committee or with an association is important.

“’It allows you to think about broader issues,’ said Mr. Rivkin, who is co-chair of
Debevoise’s international arbitration group and president of the International Bar Association. ‘It’s an opportunity to have a real impact.’”

“’It’s an opportunity to meet people who are engaged in a thing you care about,’ said Mr. Donovan, who is also a leader of the new business integrity practice and co-chair of Debevoise’s international arbitration group.”
