ew members, old members and
prospective member guests had a
great time at Domus on the Lawn
this year. This increasingly popular, iree,
outdoor barbecue and end-of-summer cele-
bration, was held on the Association's front
lawn on Thursday, September 7, for the
seventh  consecutive successful year.
Newcomers who attended felt right at
home. The warm, genuine welcoming

atmosphere that was present is the partic-
ular hallmark of the Nassau County Bar
Association when it meets at Domus, its
home. With the addition of delightful
music, plenty of good food and drink-and
even an ice cream bar from the Good
Humor man - everyone went home with
full feelings all around.
Domus on the Lawn is a special event of
the Association. It is focused on member-
ship. The evening affords an opportunity

NCBA Task Force on lawyer advertising
By HON. LANCE D. CLARKE

On June 15, 2006, the New York State
Unified Court System announced that
sweeping changes to the rules pertaining
to advertising in the Lawyer's Code of
Professional Responsibility   had  been
approved for public comment by the four
Presiding  Justices of the    Appellate
Division. The period for public comment
expires Sept. 15, 2006.
According to the press release issued by
the Office of Court Administration, the pro-
posed amendments include the following:
* A 30-day moratorium on soliciting
wrongful death or personal injury
clients, protecting families suffering
loss from overly aggressive marketing.
 A ban on using testimonials by current
clients or paid endorsements.
 Restrictions on using statements likely
to create an expectation about results

with those of other lawyers.
* The expansion of rules to cover com-
puter and Internet-based advertising

Calling all lawyers:
NCBA externs need you
By MARC C. CANN
Last year, NCBA       Past President
Christopher McGrath was instrumental in
forging a relationship with Hofstra and
Touro Law Schools by developing an extern-
ship program with those schools. Law stu-
dents received credit from their respective
law school for working in a local law firm for
the semester devoting 20 hours per week in
the office. Students were additionally
required to participate in an extern class
and accumulate 25 pages of written materi-
al for the semester.
The program was designed to encourage
young lawyers to stay on Long Island after
graduation by developing relationships
between the students, local lawyers and the
Nassau County Bar Association. In addi-
tion, the program's goal was also to seek out
and encourage minority students to stay on
Long Island and become active members of
the Bar Association. The program was a
huge success, at least in developing a rela-
tionship between the law schools, law stu-
dents, local lawyers, and the Nassau
County Bar Association. Last year approxi-
mately eight students participated in the
fall semester. That number blossomed to
approximately forty students in the spring
semester. The lawyers of NCBA who partic-
ipated in the externship program last year
were thrilled with the students and the
quality of work they produced.

Alito to speak at Theodore
Roosevelt Inn of Court
Annual Dinner at Domus
By CRAIG D. ROBINS
On Sept. 28, 2006, the Theodore Roosevelt
Chapter of the American Inns of Court wilt host
its annual dinner at Domus, the home of our
Association, honoring Samuel A. Alito, Jr., the
newest Associate Justice sitting on the United
States Supreme Court. Justice Alito was nomi-
nated as an Associate Justice of the Supreme
Court by President George W. Bush and was
sworn in on Jan. 31, 2006. He previously served
as ajudge of the United States Court of Appeals
for the Third Circuit, having been appointed by
President George Bush in 1990.
The Theodore Roosevelt Inn of Court is a
chapter of the American Inns of Court, an
organization dedicated to the enhancement of
civility, ethics and legal excellence in the prac-
tice of law. At the dinner, president-elect Lois
Carter Schlissel will be sworn in, replacing-
out-going president, Hon. Ira B. Warshawsky.
At this time, seats for the dinner are not
available. However, if seats later become
available, an e-mail will be sent to members of
the Bar Association.
