Darrell G. Mottley, the chairman of the D.C. Bar Global Legal Practice Task Force, discusses the importance of new recommendations that were released in May as part of the Task Force’s interim report in an article on the D.C. Bar’s website.
These recommendations outline a series of short-term and long-term proposals that seek to expand networking opportunities for members here and abroad, and increase professional development offerings around the practice of international law. They were recently approved by the D.C. Bar Board of Governors.
“Globalization is not going away because we are more interconnected today than ever before, and there are a growing number of cross-border legal issues,” Mr. Mottley says in the article. “Lawyers work with clients, and clients are increasingly dealing with issues in other countries. We’re not creating the globalization. Our clients are the ones who are going global, and we are following them.”
