Do you know someone worthy of Legal Leader Award?
In 2009 I created the Legal Leaders Award so we could honor attorneys who have made significant contributions in the area of law and/or distinguished themselves in their area of legal practice. Over the past two years the OC Chapter of the Whittier Law School Alumni Assoc. has hosted and recognized an impressive list of judges, elected officials and prominent attorneys – as our list grows in stature, so does our ability to attract high profile speakers and honorees. If you know of someone that fits the mold of a Legal Leader and is willing to be recognized by our law school alumni please contact me so they can be considered. Working together we can ensure the continued success of our Legal Leaders lunches.
