Please join us at the Classroom Law Project Jonathan U. Newman Legal Citizen of the Year Award Dinner & Benefit on April 26, 2017, at the Sentinel Hotel in downtown Portland. It is going to be an extra special evening!
We are proud to announce that the 2017 recipient of the Jonathan U. Newman Legal Citizen of the Year Award is The Honorable Hans Linde, Retired Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court. He has been a dedicated teacher, scholar, and judge, making significant contributions to American jurisprudence in all these roles.
The annual award dinner and benefit is one of Portland’s most celebrated events within the legal, civic and business community. Each year, guests join us in honoring Oregon’s most respected civic leaders and educators, as well as to help raise critical funds for one of the nation’s premiere civic and law-related education organizations.
We will also recognize this year’s Educator of the Year honoree, Prof. Ray Brown. Prof. Brown is a long-time educator and mock trial coach who has inspired students at Eastern Oregon University and in schools in Imbler and Warren.
