The task force,
jointly created by NYSBA President Hank Greenberg and past NYSBA President
Michael Miller, is considering the impact that the UBE has had on applicants;
on the qualifications and relevant knowledge of newly admitted New York
attorneys; on potential employers; on current members of the bar; and on
diversity in the profession. The task force is engaging with the bar, the
