Addison, Partner at Fulbright & Jaworski LLP; The Honorable Arnette R. Hubbard, Judge in the Circuit Court of Cook County, IL; The Honorable Vanessa Ruiz, Judge in the District of Columbia Court of Appeals; and Loretta A. Tuell, Partner at AndersonTuell LLP with the Margaret Brent Women Lawyers of Achievement Award.
