OKLAHOMA CITY – James L. Hall Jr., former Crowe & Dunlevy shareholder, has been named posthumously an Emeritus Fellow of the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) for his participation as a lifelong leader of the association and for his service to the legal profession.
Hall served as president of the AHLA from 1995-1996 and was the architect of the dispute resolution system still operated by the AHLA for the healthcare industry. He was elected, along with a special, one-time class of Fellows who had already retired when the Fellows program was initiated in 2004, for his contributions to the Association. The newly elected individuals will become Fellows at the AHLA’s Annual Meeting, held June 29-July 2 in San Francisco.
“Attorneys such as James Hall leave a lasting legacy for their innovative spirit and hard work,” said Roger A. Stong, Crowe & Dunlevy president. “We are proud of this well-deserved recognition.”
The Fellows are made up of former AHLA presidents, board members and committee members who have been active within the association in past years and who represent a wide range of professional backgrounds, experience, and expertise. To date, only 71 of the more than 10,000 members of the association have been chosen to become Fellows.
Fostering excellence through education, information, and dialogue, the American Health Lawyers Association is the nation's largest, nonpartisan, educational organization devoted to legal issues in the healthcare field.
