California Western Distinguished Alumni Awards

New for this year, California Western has created an honorary title for those California Western alumni who exemplify the best of the California Western tradition in our community and have earned the right to call themselves Distinguished Alumni. This year’s Distinguished Alumni Celebration will recognize the first class of Distinguished Alumni and honor their exceptional service to the community, to the profession, and to California Western. Every year approximately 10 to 15 California Western alumni will be awarded the title of Distinguished Alumni so that we recognize more of our exceptional alumni and help create a community of Distinguished Alumni that our school and community can be proud of.  

If you or someone you know is deserving of being recognized as one of California Western’s Distinguished Alumni, please submit a nomination based on their accomplishments in one or more of the following areas:

  • Exceptional Community Service:  Individuals with a proven record of exceptional generosity to individuals and communities in need by providing pro bono legal services, volunteering with organizations, and/or providing leadership and guidance as a board member.
  • Exceptional Service to the Legal Community and/or California Western:  Individuals who donate their talent to support California Western and/or legal bar organization, either serving in leadership roles or participating in educational or other events for new or practicing lawyers.
  • Exceptional Professional Success:  Individuals who represent what it means to be California Western by having achieved a high level of success in the legal profession and have a solid reputation for civility and outstanding legal skills.
