White & Case international trade litigator Carolyn Lamm will become president of the 413,000-member association in August 2009 in the wake of being nominated last week at the ABA midyear convention in Los Angeles. Lamm says she will focus on boosting the ABA's membership and diversity, saying it's "unacceptable" that only 6 percent of solo and small-firm practitioners are ABA members and that young lawyers account for about a third. She also wants to reduce discrimination within the legal profession.
