NYSBA President Younger '82 to Deliver Commencement Address
Date: 03/24/2011

Stephen Younger '82, president of the New York State Bar Association, will deliver the keynote address at Albany Law School’s 160th Commencement Ceremony.

More than 200 students will receive their J.D. or LL.M. degrees at the ceremony, held on Friday, May 13, at 10 a.m. at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center.

Stephen Younger was recently honored as Albany Law School’s Alumnus in Residence for the spring 2010 semester.

While back on the Albany Law campus, Younger, who is also 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.

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.
