Lifetime Achievers 2007
Our fourth annual awards to honor distinctive careers and public service.
Two former Cabinet members and a Kennedy administration insider. An NAACP lawyer who helped the civil rights movement defend and expand its gains in the seventies, and a pair of big-firm litigators who have been passionate about indigent defense and capital work for decades. A corporate governance pioneer, and a general counsel who used his position at General Motors as an engine for change. This is our fourth annual set of Lifetime Achievers, and over the next 16 pages, we tell their stories. These are senior lawyers who have made outsize contributions to public life while building outstanding practices at firms, in corporations, at public interest groups, or on the bench. Throughout their careers, these lawyers have exemplified the legal profession's twin values of client service and public duty. To those who follow them, their work stands as both an inspiration and a challenge.
