Victor L. George, founder of the eponymous Law Offices of Victor L. George and Reback, McAndrews & Blessey LLP Senior Partner Thomas F. McAndrews were honored.
The Civil Justice Program awards attorneys who work to advance the civil justice system in and out of courts. Honorees typically have careers marked with professional excellence, technical proficiency and uncompromising integrity, according to the university.
Law school students volunteered to check-in guests and provide other support functions throughout the night as well as network with the attendees. Around 500 people, including judges and lawyers, attended the event.
The Civil Justice Program was created in 2005 to focus research and public attention on the civil justice system, the program said. It hosts conferences, seminars and presentations as well as promotes and publishes scholarly research throughout the year.
