In June 2015, Amos Guiora, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, was inducted into the Society of Benchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Law. Guiora is an ’85 Case Western Law graduate.
The Society of Benchers was established in 1962 to give recognition to graduates of the Case Western Reserve University School of Law who have especially distinguished themselves in their professions and their communities and have thereby brought honor to the law school. Since its establishment, the society and its individual members have been models of scholarship, leadership, and dignity for law students, younger members of the bar, and the public.
Each year, the society inducts new members chosen on the basis of an extraordinary dedication to community welfare and an enduring commitment to the highest principles of the legal profession. The society also admits distinguished members of the Case Western Reserve University law faculty and encourages, in a limited number, the inclusion of attorneys and judges who are not graduates of the school, but who have taken a lively interest in the furtherance of the legal profession, legal education, and the community, and have also shown a particular concern for this law school.
