Bob Carlson, a shareholder with the Butte, Montana, law firm of Corette Black Carlson and Mickelson, P.C., became president of the American Bar Association today at the conclusion of the Annual Meeting in Chicago. He will serve a one-year term ending in August 2019.

Carlson is a native Montana and has lived and practiced there his entire life. “As a Montana lawyer in a small firm, I know first-hand what a difference membership in the ABA makes for my practice and what a difference it makes in all our communities and our nation,” Carlson said. “As president, I want to deliver the message that the ABA is essential for all lawyers. We are the voice of the legal profession, an advocate for the rule of law and a place where every lawyer can access abundant resources to be a better practicing lawyer.”
