We are pleased to announce that Lieff Cabraser partner Sarah R. London has been named Co-Chair of the Resource Board of the National Association of Women Judges. NAWJ’s mission is to promote the judicial role of protecting the rights of individuals under the rule of law through strong, committed, diverse judicial leadership; fairness and equality in the courts; and equal access to justice. Since its formation in 1979, NAWJ has inspired and led the American judiciary in achieving fairness and equality for vulnerable populations.
The resource board is an invite-only group of law partners who assist NAWJ in planning conferences for the judges and facilitating bench-bar partnerships on NAWJ initiatives such as Independence of the Judiciary, Combatting Human Trafficking, the Color of Justice (targeting girls and young women of color for legal careers), Women in Prison programming and interventions, among others.
NAWJ has a large membership of active judges from every state, and includes numerous state appellate and supreme court judges and justices, as well as administrative law judges, military judges, a smattering of federal judges from various jurisdictions, and scores of international judges.
