INTRODUCING THE 2019 WARREN CHRISTOPHER AWARDEE: BARRY A. SANDERS
By Robert E. Lutz*
The second Annual Meeting of the California Lawyers Association (CLA) offered the International Law Section (ILS) a unique opportunity to honor the memory of Warren Christopher and to affirm the values that reflect the highest qualities of our profession. The Warren Christopher Award is "presented to a legal practitioner who renders extraordinary service to our profession in the field of international law…[and has been] a stalwart promoter of the international rule of law."
The ILS is pleased to announce that it conferred its 2019 Christopher Award on Barry A. Sanders, and I was fortunate to present this award at the Annual Meeting. In bestowing the Award, we honor Barry’s very important and special contributions. Like Warren Christopherâa diplomat, politician and lawyer of the highest orderâBarry is the quintessential model of a lawyer; his contributions to international law, the community, and arts and culture are remarkable.
