The California Young Lawyers Association (“CYLA”) annually confers the Jack Berman Award of Achievement. This award recognizes a new or young lawyer for distinguished service to the public, the judiciary, or the legal profession.
CYLA established this prestigious award in 1992 in memory of Jack Berman. Mr. Berman was a young attorney who performed outstanding service to both the public and profession before he tragically died in a shooting in San Francisco. The Award honors his dedicated service to issues of concern to the profession, especially to its young lawyers.
