TJSL Professor Luz Herrera was inducted into the College of Law Practice and Management on October 27 at a ceremony in Washington, D.C.
It is a distinct honor for Professor Herrera, who started up her own solo practice in Compton California, and is the co-founder of Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s Center for Solo Practitioners, which opened on November. 1. She is also the co-founder and board president of Community Lawyers, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides low and moderate-income people access to affordable legal services and develops innovative opportunities for attorneys and law students in underserved communities.
“The College of Law Practice Management is broadening its conversation to consider how technology can help solo and small firm lawyers create new sources of income while also providing greater options for legal services to underserved communities,” said Professor Herrera.
“I am honored to be invited to join such a dialogue.”
According to the event program, “The College of Law Practice Management was formed in 1994 to honor and recognize distinguished law practice management professionals, to set standards of achievement for others in the professions, and to fund and assist projects that enhance the highest quality of law practice management.”
Congratulations to Professor Herrera from all of us in the TJSL Family!
