On Oct. 21, 2014, the office of Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. announced that the Governor has appointed Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP attorney Fred A. Rowley, Jr. to the California Commission on Uniform State Laws (CCUSL).
The CCUSL was created to represent California on the national Uniform Law Commission (ULC), a nonprofit organization focused on creating uniformity among state laws. As a commissioner, Mr. Rowley’s duties will include ensuring that unique problems facing California are recognized and the state’s perspective is considered by the ULC.
Mr. Rowley’s practice focuses on appellate litigation, complex civil litigation and white collar criminal defense. He has represented clients at all stages of trial, and in appeals before the federal Courts of Appeals, state appellate courts (including California, Delaware and New York), and the U.S. Supreme Court.
