United States: Arian June Nominated For DC Bar Board Of Governors
Last Updated: April 28 2015

Counsel Arian June has been nominated as a candidate to the DC Bar Board of Governors, the 20-lawyer committee that oversees the operation of the bar. She will vie for one of five open spots on the board during the election, which runs April 27–May 22, when all members of the DC Bar may cast votes.

"This firm has a rich tradition of bar leadership," says Partner Jamie Gorelick. "John Pickering, Jim Robertson, John Payton, Lou Oberdorfer and I were all DC Bar presidents, and participated in the lives of the bench and bar in many ways. It is great to see Arian step up to carry on that tradition."

Fostering member engagement in the life of the DC Bar is central to June's campaign vision. "One of my key goals will be to promote CLE and other professional development opportunities to enrich the educational experiences of DC Bar members," she says.

June already has strong ties to the organization, as an alumna of the DC Bar's John Payton Leadership Academy, a professional development program named to honor the legacy of the former DC Bar president, WilmerHale partner and mentor to June. She has also served with the bar's Pro Bono Program.

"I'm proud to see Arian step up as a leader for the next generation of lawyers," says Partner Bill Perlstein. "Her relentless focus, ability to build relationships and connection to the DC legal community will make her a strong addition to the board."

June has deep roots in the DC area—she grew up in southern Maryland and completed her BA at the University of Maryland before attending law school at the University of Pennsylvania. Before joining WilmerHale, she worked in the Fraud and Public Corruption Section of the US Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia. Apart from the year she spent clerking at the US District Court for the District of Columbia, June has worked in WilmerHale's DC office since 2006.

"Arian will be a spectacular board member. She is smart and collegial and public-spirited," says Gorelick. "And she cares deeply about the larger community. I support her wholeheartedly."

June, too, points to the importance of community as a central tenet of her campaign. "If elected," she says, "I will promote teamwork, collegiality and community spirit, not just because it is right, but because it helps the bar thrive."

Members of the DC Bar may vote for Arian June here. Voting closes on May 22.
