DISTINGUISHED LAWYER MEMORIAL
The Distinguished Lawyer Memorial (“DLM”) gives special and permanent recognition to deceased lawyers and judges of the San Diego County Bar Association who have demonstrated superior legal skills and high ethical standards throughout careers of significant length. Those inducted into the Distinguished Lawyer Memorial are individuals whose professional, public and private careers have additionally demonstrated outstanding dedication to the welfare of the community and the maintenance and support of the major objectives of the San Diego County Bar Foundation (SDCBF). This includes, but is not limited to, improving
- public awareness of the legal system in San Diego County
- the administration of justice and
- the delivery of legal services.
Inclusion in the Distinguished Lawyer Memorial is a professional honor.
The 2021 DLM nomination deadline has ended. Preparations for the 2021 Virtual Induction ceremony are underway for June 23, 2021.

ENSURING ACCESS TO JUSTICE
Once selected as an Honoree, colleagues, friends and families of DLM Honorees are asked to join together to make a meaningful contribution to the SDCBF in remembrance of the Honoree. The generous contribution and support allows the SDCBF, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, to continue to invest in sustainable results and legal advocacy for people and communities in the San Diego region impacted by poverty, abuse and discrimination.
The SDCBF accomplishes this mission through the grant making process. A lengthy list of SDCBF’s grant recipients, the entities which serve individuals impacted by poverty, abuse and discrimination, may be viewed online at https://sdcbf.org/grant-programs.
