On May 8, members of the Dean Law Group, APLC team were lucky enough to get 4 tickets to the sold out 2014 Lawyers Club Annual Dinner where the keynote speaker was retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman appointed to the Supreme Court. It was educational and inspirational hearing her reminisce about her prior career and the ongoing work she’s doing with iCivics.org, an online Civics educational website aimed at middle school students that she launched in 2006.

At the dinner, Justice O’Connor received Lawyers Club’s Icon Award – presented to only four other women to date – in recognition of her meritorious contributions to society throughout her life, which epitomize Lawyers Club’s values of justice, inclusion and progress.
