Myra Selby Elected to the American Health Law Association Fellows Class

Ice Miller partner Myra Selby has been elected to the Fellows Class of the American Health Law Association (AHLA). AHLA Fellows have distinguished themselves both in the practice of their health law knowledge and skills, and in their contributions to AHLA. 

Myra has dedicated her time to the AHLA for many years, having served on the organization’s board of directors, as an arbitrator and mediator for its Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Service and as chair of the ADR Task Force.

At Ice Miller, Selby maintains a broad-based practice focusing on corporate investigations, appellate practice, corporate compliance, complex litigation, dispute resolution, risk management and strategic advice across a variety of industries, with a particular emphasis on the health care industry. She joined Ice Miller in 1983 and in 1988, she became Ice Miller’s first African-American partner.

Selby has also served as Partner-in-Charge of the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee and as Chair of its Personnel Committee, among many other roles. As the firm’s first Partner-in-Charge of Diversity and Inclusion, Selby is directly involved in many of Ice Miller’s diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.

Selby previously served as Health Policy Director for the State of Indiana, a role she was appointed to by Governor Evan Bayh in 1993. Her responsibilities included policy development and the execution of state health care programs, including Medicaid managed care. Governor Bayh then appointed her as an Associate Justice of the Indiana Supreme Court, where she was both the first woman and the first African-American to serve on the court. 

Selby was recently named a recipient of the Margaret Brent Women Lawyers Achievement Award. She has also been named a “Sagamore of the Wabash” by Governor Frank O’Bannon, the Torchbearer Award – Trailblazer from the Indiana Commission for Women, “A Breakthrough Woman” Award from the Coalition of 100 Black Women, a recipient of the Antoinette Dakin Leach Award from the Indianapolis Bar Association Women in the Law Section and a recipient of an Excellence in Leadership award from Executive Women in Health Care.
