We received word today from James Francis, Board Chair of the Council of Urban Professionals, that Vincent Chang, past AABANY president and current co-chair of the Judiciary Committee, has been named one of CUP’s 15 Catalysts for Change in Law. This is the first time that CUP is awarding this recognition and we are pleased and proud that Vince has made the list along with 14 other highly distinguished and accomplished members of the New York legal community. Please join us in congratulating Vince. You can post your congratulations to Vince (and any of the other change catalysts) in the Comment section.
The formal recognition of all the Catalysts for Change in Law will take place at the Third Annual CUP Lawyers Forum on October 25, at which Don Liu will be a keynote speaker.
