Jack Berman Award of Achievement
About the Jack Berman Award
In 1992 the California Young Lawyers Association (CYLA) established the Award of Achievement for Distinguished Service to the Profession and the Public to recognize the achievements in public service of a young lawyer or a lawyer who is in the first five years of practice. The following year the award was renamed in memory of Jack Berman, a young lawyer who was killed in the 1993 shooting at 101 California St., San Francisco. Berman demonstrated outstanding service to the profession and the public by providing substantial pro bono legal assistance.
