An Award-Winning Boalt Couple
Mary Jo Shartsis '72 and her husband Arthur Shartsis '71 received the Judge Learned Hand Award from the American Jewish Committee on June 12 in San Francisco. The award honors leaders in the legal field for professional excellence and meaningful contributions to the legal community. Founding partners of the law firm Shartsis Friese in San Francisco, Mary Jo and Arthur were hailed for their work on behalf of human rights and civil liberties, and for championing much of what Judge Hand represented--the rights of the individual and the importance of democratic values in an orderly society.
Alum Appointed Ambassador
President Obama has nominated John Phillips ’69 to be U.S. Ambassador to Italy. Described as “the nation’s premier whistleblower attorney” by The Wall Street Journal, Phillips recently retired from Phillips & Cohen, the law firm he launched in 1988. Chair of the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships, he founded both the Center for Law in the Public Interest, to pursue civil rights and corporate accountability cases; and Taxpayers Against Fraud, to combat tax evasion.
