Baton Rouge attorney Michael H. Rubin has been appointed by the President of the Louisiana Senate Joel T. Chaisson II to serve a three-year term as one of Louisiana’s three Commissioners on the national Uniform Law Commission (ULC). Other ULC Commissioners have included former U.S. Supreme Court Justices William H. Rehnquist, Louis Brandeis and David Souter, as well as President Woodrow Wilson. Professor Henry Gabriel of Elon University Law School in Greensboro, North Carolina, a former professor of law in Louisiana and an active ULC Commissioner, said: “Mike Rubin’s commitment to equal justice through law reform and his encyclopedic knowledge of the law makes him the ideal appointee on this Commission.” Founded in 1892, the ULC is a national law group comprised of distinguished practicing attorneys, judges, law professors and legislators appointed by each state. Since its inception, the ULC has promulgated more than 200 uniform acts, including the Uniform Commercial Code, which impacts every person who writes a check or runs a business. Rubin, who practices in the Baton Rouge office of the multi-state law firm of McGlinchey Stafford, is known for his more than three decades’ efforts in Louisiana real estate law, finance and appellate advocacy. He has served as president of the Louisiana State Bar Association, the Baton Rouge Bar Association, the Southern Conference of Bar Presidents, the American College of Real Estate Lawyers, and the Bar Association of the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. In 2007, he was selected “Outstanding Alumnus” of the LSU Law School. Nationally known as a public speaker, Rubin has given over 300 major addresses throughout the United States, Europe and Canada. He is the author, co-author, and contributing author of twelve books and over 30 articles in law reviews and legal publications, and he has received both the Burton Award for Outstanding Legal Writing at the Library of Congress and the highest award given by the Atlanta-based Foundation for the Improvement of Justice for clarifying and simplifying the law. “Mike’s perspective and judgment will be an invaluable addition to the Louisiana Commission on Uniform State Laws,” commented Rudy Aguilar, managing member of McGlinchey Stafford.
