Vildan Teske was elected to the Federal Bar Association’s (FBA) National Board of Directors. One of only four Directors nationally selected by voters this term, Vildan was recognized by her colleagues and peers to be a leader of one of the largest legal organizations in the United States. The FBA is an association of more than 18,000 lawyers, including over 1500 judges—and the leading organization for practitioners in US federal courts.
Being elected to the National Board of Directors is the culmination of more than two decades of service to the FBA by Vildan. She is a past Chair of the FBA Younger Lawyers’ Division (YLD) and the national recipient of the Federal Bar Association’s Robyn J. Spalter Outstanding Achievement Award. Vildan is a national leader among consumer and class action advocates, and recently has been at the forefront of the battle against forced arbitration in consumer and employment cases, including testifying before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on access to justice in our court system, as well as recently speaking along with Senator Al Franken and others at an event hosted by the Center for American Progress.
