Retirement for some means you stop working. For Stanley Freidman it meant law school. Stan left his thriving insurance business in New Jersey to his sons and started law school to be admitted in 1998. After he and his wife moved to Arizona, he was determined to continue to use his legal skills to serve the community. Under Rule 38e he began to demonstrate his creativity and commitment to pro bono service.
The State Bar of Arizona is hosting their annual Summer Law Camp and is now accepting applications. This camp will be held in Tucson and Phoenix. Students in grades 9-12 for the 2013/14 school year are encouraged to apply. For more information please download the flyer below.
Barbara Dawson?s professional achievements as a commercial litigator with Snell & Wilmer alone would make her a worthy candidate for this award, but it is her many years of leadership on access to justice issues that truly show her "adherence to the highest principles and tradition of the legal profession."
