The New York Law Journal’s May 1st issue, titled “American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters,” featured AABANY members Clara Ohr (Assistant General Counsel-Trading at Hess Corporation) and Randall Eng (Presiding Justice, Appellate Division, Second Department).
AABANY President Clara Ohr’s article is entitled, “Helping Every Vote Get Cast,” on the importance of voter participation and how we as lawyers can safeguard the rights of all eligible voters.

We thank Clara Ohr and Randall Eng for offering their well-informed opinions to shed light on different sides of voters’ rights issues.
