2009 “Super Lawyers” List Includes 51 Pace Law Alumni

Another 13 alumni ranked “Rising Stars” in the legal community

WHITE PLAINS, NY (December 21, 2009) – Super Lawyers magazine has released its annual list of “Super Lawyers” throughout the United States, which this year includes 51 Pace Law School alumni.

“Pace Law School congratulates all of our alumni who have been named to the ‘Super Lawyers’ 2009 list,” said Dean Michelle S. Simon. “We as a community take great pride in their success and the accomplishments of all of our alumni.”

Published since 1991 by Law & Politics, “Super Lawyers” is an annual listing of attorneys in the top 5 percentile across all disciplines of law.

Inclusion in the Super Lawyer listing begins with peer nominations from a nationwide survey of over 800,000 lawyers.  These evaluations are combined with third party research overseen by Law & Politics. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.

The “Rising Stars” designation confers recognition upon the top up-and-coming attorneys, who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less.
