          The UC Hastings seal carries the words fiat justitia -- Let Justice Be Done. This motto is not a hollow promise; it is who we are and what we do.

          The selection of Professor Carol Izumi (center) marks the second time a UC Hastings clinical professor has been honored with the Pincus Award.

          The Pincus Award is the AALS’s highest award bestowed in the area of clinical legal education. The award acknowledges excellence in service, scholarship, program design and implementation, and other activity benefiting clinical legal education and the advancement of justice.

          Professor Carol Izumi is being recognized for her longtime service to the AALS, which includes roles as Chair of the Section on Clinical Legal Education and Chair of the Section of Alternative Dispute Resolution, Chair of the AALS Standing Committee on Clinical Legal Education, her election to the American Law Institute, and her work with the ABA Dispute Resolution Section Task Force on ABA Standards. She is a pioneer and leader in the dispute resolution field, where she has contributed to program design and development through her efforts and advocacy to establish mediation and dispute resolution clinical programs nationwide.

          “The Pincus is a lifetime achievement award for outstanding service and commitment to the clinical community. It’s an indication of the esteem in which the national community of clinical law professors holds her,” says Associate Dean Ascanio Piomelli. “Recipients are giants in the field and Carol belongs in their midst. She works at the intersection of three vital movements: clinical education, dispute resolution, and critical race theory.”

          This marks the second time that a UC Hastings clinical professor has been honored with this prestigious award. Emerita Professor Bea Moulton was a recipient in 1990. “I am absolutely delighted to learn that Carol is this year's recipient of the Pincus Award. It is indeed an honor she deeply deserves, and one I still treasure,” says Professor Moulton. “We have and have had an amazing clinical faculty for many years!”

          Professor Izumi joined the full-time faculty at UC Hastings College of the Law in 2010 as a Clinical Professor of Law. She is an internationally known dispute resolution scholar, trainer, and practitioner with the Center for Negotiation and Dispute Resolution at UC Hastings. She directs the law school’s Mediation Clinic and ADR Externship Program and serves as the Faculty Advisor to the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA). Carol is also a nationally known specialist in clinical legal education and her impactful scholarship includes Implicit Bias and the Illusion of Mediator Neutrality and co-authoring Race, Rights, and Reparation: Law and the Japanese American Internment (2d ed. 2013).

          The Award will be presented at the AALS Annual Meeting in San Diego at the Clinical Section's lunch on January 5, 2018.
