USD School of Law Legal Clinics Presented Bernard E. Witkin Award
SAN DIEGO, March 12, 2009 –The University of San Diego School of Law’s Legal Clinics have been honored with the 2009 Bernard E. Witkin Award for Excellence in Teaching of the Law. Presented annually by the Law Library Justice Foundation, the award honors members of the San Diego legal community for civic leadership and excellence in the teaching, practice, enactment or adjudication of the law.
The Witkin Fund is used to purchase books and materials for law practitioners for the San Diego County Public Law Library, in keeping with the life and writings of Bernard E. Witkin, Esq. It is aimed at resources for the practicing bar and the legal community in general, as distinct from the Law Library's other mission, to help pro per litigants. The Witkin Award Dinner is, appropriately enough, the primary fund raiser for the fund since the Witkin Award celebrates members of the legal community and their good works.
