For the first time in years, the race for the presidency of the American Bar Association will be a contested one, the ABA Journal reports. Patricia Lee Refo of Arizona, the immediate past chair of the ABA House of Delegates, is facing off against former ABA Treasurer G. Nicholas Casey of West Virginia for the seat of president-elect for the 2019-2020 bar year. The candidates will speak at a forum this week at the ABA Midyear Meeting in Vancouver, and the election will be held at the ABA’s 2019 Midyear Meeting in Las Vegas.
