The American Bar Association has named Justice Stephen Breyer, the recently retired associate justice of the United States Supreme Court, as chair of its Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) board.
He will oversee the 20-member board and five regional councils that help guide the direction of ABA ROLI rule of law programs around the world. He will begin his role on Aug. 9 at the close of the 2022 ABA House of Delegates meeting in Chicago.
Breyer has been an ABA member since 1988 and has served as a special advisor to the ABA ROLI board. He was named the 2022 recipient of the ABA Medal, which he will accept at the ABA’s Annual Meeting in Chicago in August.
