Driscoll '11 Wins Ethics Award
May 3, 2011
Amy Driscoll '11 recently received a Law Students Ethics Award from the Northeast chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel.
The chapter created the awards program to recognize and encourage the ethical practice of law at the earliest stages of a young lawyer's professional career, and at the same time to shine a spotlight on ethics more generally, demonstrating that the legal community values lawyers who are guided by ethical principles.
The award, which includes a $1,000 scholarship, is given to 11 students, one from each of the participating local law schools, who have demonstrated an early commitment to ethics through their work in a clinical program representing their first real clients.
The Association of Corporate Counsel is the world's largest organization serving the professional and business interests of attorneys who practice in the legal departments of corporations, associations and other private-sector organizations around the globe.
