The CBF congratulates Robert A. Clifford, who will receive the inaugural Champion of Justice Award at the CBA 150th Anniversary Gala on May 10. Bob has been a longtime leader and generous supporter of the CBF and pro bono, legal aid, and access to justice more broadly.

The new Champion of Justice award recognizes attorneys who, like Bob, have demonstrated superior professional competence and advocacy on behalf of their clients throughout their careers. Going forward the award will be bestowed annually in Bob’s honor to a CBA member who has demonstrated their devotion to the highest principles of integrity and traditions of the legal profession.
