Jennifer Jensen Appointed Idaho's First Young Lawyer Delegate to the American Bar Association

The Idaho State Board of Commissioners recently appointed Holland & Hart associate Jennifer Jensen as Idaho’s first Young Lawyer Delegate to the American Bar Association (ABA). Ms. Jensen was selected by the Idaho State Bar Board of Commissioners via a nomination process, and her term is effective from her appointment until the Annual Meeting in 2017.

The control and administration of the ABA is vested in the House of Delegates, the policy-making body of the association. At the 2015 Annual Meeting, the House of Delegates of the ABA adopted a proposal to provide for additional young lawyer delegates for delegations that do not currently have a young lawyer delegate to the ABA House of Delegates.

“The Idaho State Bar Board made the right choice by selecting Jennifer for this prestigious position. Congratulations from all of us in Boise and the firm,” said Holland & Hart partner Walter Bithell.

As a Young Lawyer Delegate, Ms. Jensen will be a delegate of the House which considers and adopts new policy resolutions on a broad range of issues related to the legal profession. Once resolutions are adopted as official ABA policy, the Governmental Affairs Office coordinates implementation of the policies and serves as the focal point for the Association's advocacy efforts before Congress, the Executive Branch and other governmental entities.

Ms. Jensen is a member of the firm’s Commercial Litigation team. Prior to joining Holland & Hart, Ms. Jensen served as law clerk to the Honorable N. Randy Smith of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
