Recognition in the Distinguished Lawyer Memorial induction is permanent, and plaques honoring each inductee are located in the Hall of Justice.


The San Diego County Bar Foundation is the charitable arm of the San Diego County legal community, and in partnership with the San Diego County Bar Association, strives to provide access to justice by investing in sustainable results and advocacy for people and communities in our region that that are impacted by poverty, abuse and discrimination. In 2021, SDCBF awarded $393,500 to 26 non-profit organizations that provide access to justice for people and communities that are most impacted by poverty, abuse and discrimination throughout San Diego County.
