College of Law to Celebrate Distinguished Alumni with Syracuse Law Honors Awards
The Syracuse University College of Law will honor three distinguished alumni with the 2016 Syracuse Law Honors Award on Friday, October 14 at 6:00 p.m. in Dineen Hall. Established and presented by the Syracuse University Law Alumni Association (SULAA), the Syracuse Law Honors Awards will recognize the following 2016 recipients:
• Susan C. Yu L’96, trial lawyer and Principal, Susan Yu Law Group, APC, Los Angeles, CA
• Hon. William J. Fitzpatrick Jr. ’74, L’76, District Attorney for Onondaga County
• Hon. Frederick J. Scullin Jr. L’64, Senior District Judge in the Northern District of New York
“This year’s recipients of the Syracuse Law Honors Award exemplify a broad range of achievements in our legal profession, inside and outside the courtroom, and in the communities in which they live and serve,” said Carey Ng L’02, president of the SULAA Board of Directors and Assistant District Attorney in the New York County District Attorney’s Office. “All three are outstanding ambassadors for the College of Law and we are proud to be celebrating their accomplishments during Alumni Weekend.”
The Syracuse Law Honors Award Program was established in 2015 to celebrate “distinguished achievements in any field of endeavor” by members of the Syracuse University College of Law family (alumni, current and former faculty and staff, students and parents) for service to the College of Law, the legal profession, Syracuse University or the world at large.
The Syracuse Law Honors Award program is a highlight of the College of Law’s Alumni Weekend, October 14 and 15. Reunion weekend activities will include: tours of Dineen Hall and the Peter Herzog (L’55) and Brigitte Herzog (L’75) Special Collections room in the College of Law Library; meeting with current editors of the Syracuse Law Review; a discussion on national security issues with Board of Advisors Distinguished Professor William Banks; special recognition of class years 1956, 1961 and 1966; and a tailgate party prior to the Syracuse Orange vs. Virginia Tech Hokies football game.
