Robbins Geller and USD Team Up to Provide a Lasting Legal Education
On September 19, 2012, Cherie Blair, QC and Patrick W. Daniels, Esq. attended a luncheon at the University of San Diego (“USD”) in order to acknowledge the generous contribution of Robbins Geller and USD in providing an LLM education to a student from Ethiopia through Mrs. Blair’s Africa Justice Foundation (“AJF”).
The AJF provides assistance to lawyers from African nations who will receive a year of training and education in the United States with the understanding that they will return to their home countries with a wealth of knowledge to share with other lawyers and apply to their daily work.
Mrs. Blair is a leading barrister specializing in public law, human rights, employment and European Community law, arbitration and mediation. She has appeared in a number of leading cases both at home and abroad. She is also a noted speaker on human rights and a staunch supporter of women’s rights.
Mrs. Blair was very pleased with the results of the joint efforts of AJF and Robbins Geller. Mrs. Blair said, “I thank Robbins Geller for its commitment to the legal field and for its assistance to the Africa Justice Foundation. I look forward to continuing our relationship in helping others become great lawyers.”
