McGlinchey News Release
A National First For LouisianaRead Time: 1 min
The prestigious American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL) elected Louisiana attorney Mike Rubin as its President at the College’s annual meeting held in Seattle, Washington. He is the first Louisianian to be elected to this position, and he is the only Baton Rouge lawyer in the organization.
Rubin, a senior partner in the McGlinchey Stafford law firm, is nationally recognized for his law review articles and writings about real estate and finance. Trained in Louisiana’s unique civil law tradition, which is unlike the common law of the other forty-nine states, Rubin now leads this national group in its efforts to further develop and enhance real estate law for the benefit of all involved, including homeowners, commercial developers, businesses, and lenders from coast-to-coast.
The American College of Real Estate Lawyers elects as its members only those nationally-known lawyers of proven experience and knowledge who are distinguished for their skill, experience and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the practice of real estate law.
Rubin has taught as an adjunct professor at the LSU Law School, and both federal and state courts have cited his publications as authoritative. He is a past-president of the Louisiana State Bar Association, the Bar Association of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Southern Conference of Bar Presidents, and the Baton Rouge Bar Association.
Rubin also has served on the Executive Council of the National Conference of Bar Presidents. He currently is Chair of the Ethics Committee of the Real Property Section of the American Bar Association.
