Keith Brais has been a “Proctor in Admiralty” of the Maritime Law Association (“MLA”) since 1998. The objective of the MLA is to, among other things, advance reforms in the Maritime Law of the United States. The MLA membership consists of lawyers involved in maritime matters, judges active in matters involving admiralty issues, admiralty law professors, and non-lawyers who are selected because they hold responsible positions in the maritime field and have rendered distinguished service in the advancement of maritime law or its administration. The designation “Proctor in Admiralty” is of ancient origin and applied to lawyers entitled to handle maritime litigation. The designation was continued in the American colonies and, until recently, in our federal court system. Though no longer in official usage, “Proctor” is intended by the MLA to designate the most distinguished class of membership for practicing maritime attorneys.
