James R. Silkenatt
It is my privilege to introduce Jim Silkenat, Immediate Past President
of the ABA. Jim graduatedfrom the University of Chicago School of
Law, where he was editor of the Law Review. He then went to New
York University School of Law and earned his Master of Laws in
International Law. He has served as Chair of the International Law
Section ofthe ABA. In fact, in 2007, he received the Lifetime Achieve-
mentAwardfrom thatABA Section. He has authored or co-authored
fifteen books and over 100 scholarly articles on legal issues concern-
ing business and the justice system. And I would encourage you to
join the ABA, ifyou haven 't already, because it contains people like
Jim Silkenat. He is one of those people who has the unique ability to
make people believe they are important and motivate them to do great
things that they ordinarily might not do. Jim is a keen intellect. He
has been a great president of the ABA, and he is a man of honor and
integrity. Please join with me in welcoming Jim Silkenat. *
Thank you, Mr. Coplin. It is an honor to be here in Birmingham, to
discuss the issues of practicing law in our current technological age.
Given all the snow and cold in New York this year, I have been looking
forward to this event for some time. I had not realized that winter in
Birmingham felt so much like winter in New York.
