On Wednesday, December 10, Professor Richard Zitrin was honored with an Award of Merit from the San Francisco Bar Association at the Annual Membership Luncheon.
Professor Zitrin, a Lecturer of Law who specializes in legal ethics, is the Chair of the Justice & Diversity Center’s Bay Area Minority Law Student Scholarship selection committee. He has funded at least six of these minority scholarships given out by the Bar Association through the Arthur & Charlotte Zitrin Foundation, named for his parents.
In 2014, Zitrin endowed a $200,000 scholarship trust named after Shanna Bradford, an attorney who received one of the first Bay Area Minority Law Student Scholarships, and passed away in 2009. This endowment will provide $10,000 a year for a series of 3-year scholarships.
Professor Richard Zitrin Featured by the San Francisco Bar Association: Zitrin spent hundreds of hours ensuring that James Mead, an army veteran in need of pro bono legal services, received the help he needed. And got the legal result to which he was entitled.
