          On Wednesday, December 10, Professor Richard Zitrin was honored with an Award of Merit from the San Francisco Bar Association at the Annual Membership Luncheon.

          Professor Zitrin, a Lecturer of Law who specializes in legal ethics, is the Chair of the Justice & Diversity Center’s Bay Area Minority Law Student Scholarship selection committee. He has funded at least six of these minority scholarships given out by the Bar Association through the Arthur & Charlotte Zitrin Foundation, named for his parents. 

          In 2014, Zitrin endowed a $200,000 scholarship trust named after Shanna Bradford, an attorney who received one of the first Bay Area Minority Law Student Scholarships, and passed away in 2009. This endowment will provide $10,000 a year for a series of 3-year scholarships.
