IRVINE, Calif. —  Ryan Baron, who is of counsel in Best Best & Krieger LLP’s Environmental Law & Natural Resources practice group, is serving as the Public Law Section’s appointee to the California Lawyers Association Board of Representatives. The CLA oversees all educational programs for lawyers in California, which was formerly a function of the State Bar of California until the CLA was formed this year.

Baron was sworn-in Saturday by California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye at the CLA’s inaugural meeting in San Diego. The immediate past chair of the Public Law Section, Baron will continue as the Section’s representative in what has become the second-largest bar association in the U.S. with more than 100,000 members.
 
“I am happy to represent the California attorneys who work in public law so that they may, in turn, serve their public agency clients while armed with the latest and best knowledge about developments in the law,” Baron says. “I feel privileged to be a part of this new venture and honored to be selected by my peers during this pivotal and exciting time in California.”
 
Baron’s practice focuses on water, energy, air, solid waste, public utility regulation, infrastructure development and public agency governance. In recent years, he has become a go-to authority in the emerging areas of community choice energy and water quality regulation. Prior to joining BB&K, Baron served as senior deputy county counsel to Orange County where he was lead counsel to several large county agencies and oversaw the office’s regulatory and public works functions.
