Brad Karp Receives 2021 McCloy Award From Fund for Modern Courts

Firm Chairman Brad Karp received the 2021 John J. McCloy Memorial Award from the Fund for Modern Courts, a non-partisan court reform organization that advocates for the improvement of the New York state court system. The award recognizes lawyers who have made outstanding contributions to improving the administration of justice in New York state. Brad “has demonstrated his commitment to improving the New York state justice system by pursuing crucial social justice initiatives, safeguarding the rule of law, coalescing the private bar around key pro bono efforts, maximizing the legal community’s impact to protect immigrant families, women’s reproductive freedoms, the LGBTQ community, and voting rights,” the Fund noted; it also highlighted Brad’s work on the Commission to Reimagine the Future of New York’s Courts and as co-chair of its Online Courts Working Group, which issued a report last year recommending the establishment of an enduring online court system that will offer crucial remote accessibility during the COVID pandemic and beyond, while ensuring that all participants in New York’s court system continue to have equal access to the justice. Chief Judge of the State of New York Janet DiFiore presented Brad with the award at a virtual event on October 12.
