On October 26, 2019, McGeorge alumna Carmen-Nicole Cox (’11) will receive the American Inns of Court’s 2019 Sandra Day O’Connor Award for Professional Service. Ms. Cox currently serves as the chief of legislative affairs for administration at the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
“I am so proud and humbled to receive the 2019 Sandra Day O’Connor Award. More than a celebration of the professional and pro bono work that I’ve done in my short career, I see this award as a celebration of persisting American values. Despite what we see in the press and social media, America continues to value humanity, humility, and unity in our diverse society. I am truly honored to join so many of my peers and colleagues at the U.S. Supreme Court as we honor these values in society, generally, as well as civility, ethics and professionalism in the practice of law, specifically.”
