These laudatory comments — and more — were in praise of Chicago attorney Lowell E. Sachnoff at JCUA’s annual Jurisprudence Dinner (Nov. 16, 2011). Sachnoff received the Arthur Goldberg Social Justice Award from JCUA, celebrating a legal career characterized by a commitment to social justice.
Mikva, a law professor, former congressman and retired federal judge, reminded the audience of more than 250 lawyers, friends and JCUA supporters that he and the award’s namesake — Arthur Goldberg — had worked together many years ago.
