Justice Sonya Sotomayor of the Supreme Court of the United States and Chief Judge Robert A. Katzmann of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will participate in the event.

The Burton Awards Program, established in 1999, is funded by the Burton Foundation, a nonprofit, academic effort devoted to recognizing and rewarding excellence in the legal profession. The Burton Awards were established to honor the finest accomplishments in law, including writing, reform, public service and interest, regulatory innovation, and lifetime achievements in the profession.
