Share |

Lawyers Club established the C. Hugh Friedman New Lawyer Award in 2013 to recognize members in practice seven years or less who are champions in advancing Lawyers Club's mission and demonstrating leadership and professionalism within the San Diego legal community.

The award is named for Lawyers Club founding member Professor C. Hugh Friedman (1931-2013), husband to Lawyers Club founding mother, the Honorable Lynn Schenk, and the longest-serving professor in the history of University of San Diego School of Law.

2019 Shannon R. Finley

In addition to her academic and career achievements, Finley is actively involved in both Lawyers Club and the San Diego legal community. Finley joined Lawyers Club as a law student and has remained engaged with the organization throughout her career. What drew Finley to Lawyers Club was the opportunity to get to know and work with amazing women who are always willing to help and support one another. “I love Lawyers Club—the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. My involvement has helped both my professional and personal growth,” says Finley.

Finley truly embodies the spirit of the C. Hugh Friedman Award. Please join Lawyers Club in congratulating Shannon R. Finley on this great honor.
