EQUAL JUSTICE WORKS The nonprofit Equal Justice Works announced this year’s award winners during a ceremony held in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 27. Roderick Palmore received the Scales of Justice Award after writing A Call to Action, which encourages corporate law departments to offer more than lip service when promoting diversity. Gene Nichol was named Outstanding Law School Dean for founding the University of North Carolina’s Center for Civil Rights to advance social justice. Marni Lennon received the Outstanding Law School Staff Award for her nonprofit work. Lennon heads Helping Others Through Pro Bono Efforts, a grass-roots organization that highlights for University of Miami School of Law students the benefits of pro bono work. Alexander Saingchin, a student at Rutgers School of Law, received the Martindale-Hubbell Exemplary Public Service Award. He established the Asian American Legal Project to assist low-income and disadvantaged Asian Americans with overcoming cultural and linguistic obstacles when accessing legal aid.
PRO BONO Baker & McKenzie was named Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year by the Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights Coalition, which is based in Washington. The award acknowledges charitable contributions to advance the recognition of rights for immigrants to the United States. The firm helped detained immigrants understand the charges against them and their legal options. — Nathan Carlile
