THE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE saluted Steve Zack and Bennett H. Brummer at its Miami Jurisprudence Award Luncheon. Zack was the first Hispanic American to assume the ABA presidency and “has dedicated much of his career to promoting equal access to justice at home and the rule of law abroad.” Brummer has “dedicated his life to public service, using his legal talent and leadership in service to the poor.” Brummer devoted 40 years to the work of the Miami-Dade Public Defender’s Office. Pictured is Zack, left, and Alan Dimond of Greenberg Traurig who co-chaired the event. ADL, created in 1913, to “seek justice and fair treatment for all citizens alike,” established the Jurisprudence Award to recognize individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the legal profession and the community at large, while exemplifying the principles on which the ADL was founded.
