Many thanks to the San Diego Law Library Foundation for another amazing Witkin Award Reception. We were overwhelmed by the love and praise we received from the attendees, both in person and online. It was so wonderful to have everyone gather together to celebrate and support the Witkin Honorees and the Law Library.

We are so grateful to our hardworking San Diego Law Library Foundation Board and would especially like to thank the Foundation Board President Ana Sambold, Esq., for putting together this amazing event, and the Hon. Victor E. Bianchini, Ret., for being a fantastic master of ceremonies!

Awards were presented to Justice Truc T. Do, for Excellence in the Adjudication of the Law;  to Johanna Schiavoni, Esq., for Excellence in the Practice of Law and Community Changemaker; to Prof. Robert C. Fellmeth, for Excellence in Legal Education, and our very own director, John Adkins, Esq., for Excellence in Public Service. And, in a surprise twist, San Diego Law Library Board of Trustees President (and San Diego City Attorney) Mara Elliott, Esq., was honored with the Stephanie L. Schweter Award for Excellence for her dedicated service to the Law Library. You can learn more about our honorees and the mission of the San Diego Law Library Foundation in the Electronic Program Booklet.
