Public Justice has honored Lieff Cabraser founding partner Elizabeth J. Cabraser with the 2018 Champion of Justice Award for exceptional leadership and advocacy on justice and civil rights. The Champion of Justice Award is the Public Justice Foundation’s highest honor, established to honor lawyers whose work, values and commitment to combating social and economic injustice inspires and motivates the wider legal community.
“For those of us in the trial lawyer community, Elizabeth really needs no introduction. She is a force of nature who has been vision and energy behind some of the biggest, most successful and most significant, litigation in the nation,” states Public Justice Executive Director Paul Bland. “For many of us, she is also both an icon and a mentor. And she has also been an amazing behind-the-scenes advocate on many policy and procedural issues that have a major impact on the work many of us do every single day, such as her long years of service in protecting the civil justice system against harmful proposals to re-write the federal civil rules.”
Public Justice will present the Champion of Justice Award, along with the 2018 Trial Lawyer of the Year Award and Illuminating Injustice Award, at its 36th Annual Gala & Awards Dinner at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts at 6:30pm MDT.
Join us in congratulating Elizabeth on this extraordinary recognition!
