The ABA’s immediate-past president, Stephen N. Zack, has been named chairman of the National Center for Access to Justice.
The center is dedicated to developing policy reforms to make the nation’s courts more accessible and fair for people facing financial constraints and other vulnerabilities. The center is an independent organization that maintains a close affiliation with Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City, where it is housed.
“The center’s mission is particularly important and challenging today, with households and courts alike suffering severe budget constraints,” said executive director David Udell in a statement issued on March 19. “Steve Zack brings the extraordinary combination of knowledge, passion and unparalleled experience needed to meet the challenge head-on.”
Zack is administrative partner for Boies, Schiller & Flexner in Miami.
