          Suzette Pringle ‘10, of Orrick, Herrington, and Sutcliffe LLP, received the Keta Taylor Colby Award from the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area (LCCR) at the 28th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Awards Luncheon on Friday, January 23, 2015 at the Hilton Union Square in San Francisco.

          Emeritus Professor Shauna Marshall emceed part of the event.

          The LCCR, which works to advance, protect and promote the legal rights of communities of color, low-income persons, immigrants, and refugees, honored Pringle for her outstanding pro bono representation to the poor and under-represented through the Second Chance Legal Clinic, which protects and advances civil rights by addressing the civil consequences of the disproportionate representation of people of color and low-income affected by the criminal justice system.

          “I felt very surprised and humbled to learn that I would receive the Keta Taylor Colby Award. The LCCR is an amazing civil rights organization and they do great work through the Second Chance Legal Clinic,” said Pringle. She said that her experience in several of UC Hastings' professional development courses - including the course in Client Interviewing - gave her the skills necessary for her work with the Second Chance Legal Clinic.

          “In addition, UC Hastings' dedication to public interest law and social justice instilled in me the importance of pro bono work and using one's legal skills to help marginalized individuals,” she said.
