September 03, 2014
Adam J. Langino, an Associate at the national plaintiff litigation firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC, has been appointed Ex Officio Trustee of the Pound Civil Justice Institute.
The Pound Civil Justice Institute was established in 1956 by a group of American trial lawyers to honor and build upon the work of Roscoe Pound (1870-1964). Pound served as Dean of the Harvard Law School from 1916 to 1936, and is acknowledged as the founder of the discipline of sociological jurisprudence. Through its programs, the Institute works to give lawyers, judges, educators and the public a balanced view of the U.S. civil justice system.
Langino was nominated as the representative on behalf of the New Lawyers Division of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) and will serve through July 31, 2015. He is a 2006 Cum Laude graduate of the University of Minnesota School Of Law and a former Assistant Public Defender in West Palm Beach, Fla. Langino was recently re-appointed to the Board of the Florida Justice Association's Young Lawyer Section and named “Top 40 Under 40” by The National Trial Lawyers.
