ABA President Hilarie Bass To Speak on Leadership at Tulane

November 02, 2017

Hilarie Bass

The president of the American Bar Association, Hilarie Bass, will visit Tulane Law School to address Tulane and Loyola Law students Thurs., Nov. 9, and discuss the importance of leadership in legal practice.

Bass will speak from 1:45 to 2:45 p.m. in Room 110 on “Engaged Leadership as a Lawyer: A Q&A with ABA President Hilarie Bass.”  A co-president of the global law firm Greenberg Traurig and one of the most respected women lawyers in the U.S., Bass leads the world’s largest professional organization with more than 400,000 members.

Bass, a prolific trial attorney in the area of securities, has represented high-profile corporate clients in jury and non-jury trials, settled more than 100 cases and numerous appeals in a career that spans 30 years. Also, she is widely respected for her pro bono work on behalf of two foster children that led to the end of Florida’s 20-year-old ban on adoption by gay and lesbian parents.

At Greenberg Traurig, she was part of the firm’s executive committee, and served an eight-year term as national chair of its 600-member litigation department. She is the founder and former chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Women’s Initiative.

Bass has mentored young lawyers for years and has supported the ABA’s mission since she became an attorney.  She has lectured extensively on rules of procedure and evidence, expert testimony, creditors' rights and foreclosure issues, rainmaking, professionalism, and women lawyer issues.

Bass will be introduced during her Tulane visit by Judy Perry Martinez (L ’82), a lawyer with Simon, Peragine, Smith & Redfearn, formerly Vice President of Northrop Grumman, and herself a senior leader within the ABA.

The event is open to the Tulane and Loyola communities.
