Younger �82 Honored as Alumnus in Residence
Date: 09/16/2010

Stephen Younger '82, the president of the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA), was honored as Albany Law School’s Alumnus in Residence on Sept. 16.

While back on the Albany Law campus, Younger, who is a partner at Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler, LLP, spoke about NYSBA and the importance of getting involved as a student, and he also participated in four lawyering classes and met with students.

His time as Alumnus in Residence culminated in a career roundtable, where he was joined by Edward Bogdan III '92, Bogdan Lasky & Kopley L.L.C.; Judge Leslie Stein '81, New York State Supreme Court Third Judicial District; and Robert Balachandran '91, Cushman & Wakefield.

The career roundtable allowed students to hear from alumni who have pursued a variety of career paths, from private practice to federal government and in-house counsel to lobbying.

A trustee emeritus of Albany Law School, as well as a past president of the law school's National Alumni Council, Younger is a frequent lecturer and author in the fields of securities litigation, commercial arbitration and international dispute resolution.

As a commercial litigator at Patterson Belknap, a prominent New York City law firm where he has worked since 1985, he has tried many cases in federal and state court and before arbitration panels.  He also frequently argues appeals, particularly in the appellate courts of New York.  Based on his significant alternative dispute resolution experience, he is often called on to serve as an arbitrator or mediator in high-stakes matters.

The Alumni in Residence program, inaugurated in 1992, was designed to bring the law school's most distinguished graduates back to campus to share their expertise with students and to raise awareness about the value of an Albany Law degree.
