Lawyers Club established the C. Hugh Friedman New Lawyer Award in 2013 to recognize members in practice seven years or less who are champions in advancing Lawyers Club's mission and demonstrating leadership and professionalism within the San Diego legal community.
The award is named for Lawyers Club founding member Professor C. Hugh Friedman (1931-2013), husband to Lawyers Club founding mother, the Honorable Lynn Schenk, and the longest-serving professor in the history of University of San Diego School of Law.
