Robert P. Schuster was admitted to the New York Bar on March 30, 2012. In a ceremony conducted in Albany, New York, he was certified to practice law in New York State before all trial and appellate courts.
Schuster—who is also admitted to practice in the states of Wyoming and Utah—said that he was particularly honored to become a member of the New York Bar. “The New York Bar is one of the most respected bar associations in the United States. Its members have included some of the finest lawyers and judges in the history of the nation. I am also pleased to me a member because New York, specifically New York City, is at the very center of commercial and cultural innovation, both nationally and internationally.”
Schuster studied at New York University School of Law as an Urban Law Fellow of the Ford Foundation, a fellowship that also included his attendance at Harvard Law School from which he was awarded his LL.M degree.
Robert P. Schuster is also a member of the New York State Bar Association, a membership organization that is the oldest and largest voluntary state bar association in the United States.
