Ellen Flannery Elected President of American Bar Foundation

October 19, 2016

WASHINGTON—The American Bar Foundation has elected Ellen Flannery as President of the board of the American Bar Foundation (ABF), a position she will hold for two years. 

Ms. Flannery has served as a member of ABF’s board of directors since 2005, and most recently served as Vice President. She also was chair of The Fellows of the ABF from 2007 to 2008. 

“Ellen has earned the respect of ABF researchers, staff, and volunteers alike for her devotion to the Foundation, her leadership skills, and her strength of character,” said David A. Collins, the immediate past president of the ABF. “The ABF is in good hands with her at the helm.”

“I am very proud to support the ABF, and I look forward to serving as President of the board,” Ms. Flannery said. “The top-notch empirical research conducted by the ABF faculty and affiliated scholars inspires and informs evidence-based laws and social policy. This work is critically important to our justice system.”

The ABF is an independent, nonprofit organization, and is the nation’s leading research institute for the empirical study of law, legal institutions, and legal processes.
