BBQ at the Bar 2015
                   From Cook Out to Cook In


      By Valerie Zurblis

   The predicted September
10th    torrential  down-
pour  challenged even  the
best of windshield  wipers.
However,  the annual  BBQ
at the Bar (formerly Domus
on the Lawn) is held rain or
shine, and this year was no


exception.
   Between   burgers   and
beans, bites of conversation
gave hints of why this event
is always  successful. John
Wagner  came to get his feet
wet -  so to speak - in the
local legal community as he
had recently transferred his
practice from  Manhattan.
I want to learn more about


practice areas that are viable
here, to connect with other
attorneys, and find out how
I can use the Bar to further
my  practice. I'm also real-
ly excited about leaving the
commute  and LIRR  behind!

Preserving Domus, Our Home


By Valerie Zurblis


  The Nassau  County Bar Association (NCBA)
is one of a handful of bars in the country that
can boast owning its own building and in-house
dining facilities. Domus, the informal name of
the NCBA   building in Mineola, is designed in
a style representative of London's Inns of Court
and  features The Great Hall and  fireplace,
meeting and  conference rooms and a formal
dining room open  for lunch every day. This
building provides an exceptional home for all
NCBA  members.
   Domus is an intricate part of the spirit of
the Bar  Association, said NCBA President


Steven J. Eisman. The  excellent reputation
of the Nassau County Bar Association and our
members,  our award-winning  programs  and
community  service projects, are due, in large
part, to Domus. Domus is the center of all our
activity, bringing us together as a stronger force
in the legal community,
  In  1927, the visionary forefathers of the
Nassau  County  Bar  Association wanted to
ensure the future of the Bar Association. They
decided the best way to do this was to build a
permanent home  located near the courts on the
corner of 15th and West Streets in Mineola. As
time went on, Domus became the iconic symbol
of the Bar Association, the legal communitys

 NCBA Committees

         By Martha Krisel

   The  Nassau County Bar
Association's committees are up
and  running.  Our  committees
meet  morning, noon  and night
and offer something for everyone.
Here  are some examples  of the
great opportunities.

           Morning
   Hospitals and  Health  Law
kicked off its program year with
a  detailed presentation entitled
PrivacyUpdate: HIPAA, HITECH
and  the Omnibus  Rule. Farrell
Fritz's Jeffrey P. Rust presented
to an every-seat-taken crowd in
the Founders' Room, beginning at
8:30 a.m. This committee meets
on  the first Thursday of each
month.  The attendees shared a
slightly lighter moment during
this intense overview of HIPAA
pitfalls and penalties when - mid
presentation - a  member's cell
phone  blurted out in true Siri
fashion: I don't understand what
