Noble-Allgire is an associate editor of the American Bar Association’s Probate and Property magazine and a member of the American Law Institute. She served as a co-reporter for the Uniform Law Commission’s Revised Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act and as a reporter for a ULC study committee on construction defects in residential housing. In other service to the profession, she has served as chair of several diversity committees for the Illinois State Bar Association and was secretary-treasurer of the Southern Illinois American Inn of Court from 2003-2007.
