CEO of Human Rights First, Speaks at Kaye Scholer’s 2009 Annual Pro Bono Awards Eve…

June 2, 2009

On June 2, 2009, Kaye Scholer held its annual Pro Bono Awards Event to honor the 118 lawyers in the New York office who contributed 50 or more hours of pro bono legal services in 2008. The guest speaker was Elisa Massimino, the CEO and Executive Director of Human Rights First, one of the nation's leading human rights advocacy organizations and the referral source for more than 20 of the pro bono asylum cases handled by our lawyers. Ms. Massimino, who was named one of the top 20 public advocates in the country by the influential Washington, DC newspaper The Hill, thanked Kaye Scholer for its longstanding commitment to helping refugees from around the world to escape persecution in their home countries and start a new life in the United States.

In addition, certificates of excellence were awarded to sixteen lawyers for five consecutive years of 50+ hours of pro bono work.
