Hon. Nitza I. Quiñones Alejandro to Be Presented With 2016 Justice Sonia Sotomayor Diversity Award at Spring Quarterly
Join the Philadelphia Bar Association for its 2016 Spring Quarterly Meeting & Reception at the Hyatt at The Bellevue on Tuesday, April 5 at 5:30 p.m. This year's Spring Quarterly Meeting will be held as an evening networking reception. During the Quarterly Meeting portion, the Association will present the Justice Sonia Sotomayor Diversity Award and the Andrew Hamilton Gold Box. Following the meeting, members will have the opportunity to network with each other in a relaxed cocktail-reception setting.
The 2016 Justice Sonia Sotomayor Diversity Award will be presented to Hon. Nitza I. Quiñones Alejandro, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The award publicly acknowledges, recognizes and honors an individual or entity that has demonstrated a strong commitment, and has made a substantial contribution, to diversity and promoting full and equal participation and inclusion in the legal profession.
Immediate-Past Chancellor Albert S. Dandridge III will also be honored at the event. He will be presented with a gold box, a replica of the one presented to Andrew Hamilton for his defense of John Peter Zenger in 1735. The gold box is presented annually to the Immediate-Past Chancellor and is inscribed with the message "acquired not by money, but by character."
The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the reception will follow at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $65 for members, $90 for non-members, $55 for public interest and government members and $55 for YLD members. A special Law Student rate of $25 is also available.
