Covington Receives Inaugural ‘Children’s Pro Bono Champion Award’ from Children’s Law Center

September 22, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC, September 22, 2010 — Covington & Burling LLP received the 2010 Children’s Pro Bono Champion Award from Children’s Law Center last night. Tony Herman, chair of Covington’s public service committee and a litigation partner, accepted the inaugural award during the CLC’s 10th annual Helping Children Soar benefit at the Kennedy Center.

“It’s my honor to be part of an organization that does so much to improve the lives of children in DC,” commented Mr. Herman. “I know that every staff member who we send to CLC comes back to Covington a better lawyer, a better paralegal. Money can’t buy their increased passion and commitment to the legal profession and justice.”

“It is fitting that our first-ever Children’s Pro Bono Champion Award goes to Covington & Burling. They have supported our organization with their dedicated leadership and gifted staff,” said Judith Sandalow, executive director of Children’s Law Center. “Covington has demonstrated their steadfast support to DC’s children by loaning an associate and a paralegal to work in our offices for the past seven years.”

Children’s Law Center also honored CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta with the 2010 Distinguished Child Advocate Award for his work to raise awareness about health and wellness issues impacting people around the world, particularly children.

Covington has a strong commitment to public service. The firm encourages all of its lawyers to participate in pro bono work, and devotes significant resources to finding pro bono projects that reflect the diverse interests of its lawyers. The American Lawyer has ranked Covington at or near the top of its annual pro bono survey for the past 18 years.
