Manhattan attorney Michael Miller was sworn in as the 121st president of the New York State Bar Association during a ceremony on June 4.

“This is the greatest honor of my professional life,” Miller said. “Words are inadequate to fully express how very deeply honored I am to serve as the president of the New York State Bar Association.”

The ceremony took place in Manhattan at the New York County Lawyers Association in front of more than 160 members of the bar association, judges, colleagues and family members as Chief Judge Janet DiFiore administered the oath of office.

“Our emphasis will be on a broad range of topics relevant to the effective administration of justice in the 21st century,” Miller said. “We will focus on important criminal justice issues, explore the criteria and best practices for screening candidates for election to judicial office, discuss important law practice management matters and address America’s scourge of mass shootings, assault weapons and related legal issues.”

Prior to becoming NYSBA President, Miller spent the previous year as president-elect and chair of the House of Delegates. He has also served on the Executive Committee as vice-president of the First Judicial District.

Miller is a past president of the New York County Lawyers Association, a past chair of the NYS Conference of Bar Leaders, and has been a member of the House of Delegates of both NYSBA and the American Bar Association.
