Epstein Becker Green Creates Robert D. Reif Fellowship in Legal Ethics and Professional Values to Honor Memory of Longtime PartnerNovember 13, 2012
Epstein Becker Green has created the Robert D. Reif Fellowship with the assistance of American University Washington College of Law. The mission of this fellowship is to honor the memory of Epstein Becker Green's longtime partner Robert "Bob" Reif by furthering his commitment in the practice of law to maintaining the highest level of ethical standards and professionalism in dealing with clients, fellow attorneys, and the community. Additional information about the fellowship is listed below.
Epstein Becker Green believes, as did Bob, that there are core values in the legal profession that transcend the social and economic changes that take place over time and that such values provide a moral compass that guides a good lawyer to uphold justice, the rule of law, and service to the community, while faithfully representing clients. Our vision is to perpetuate and enhance such values by enabling law students to engage in further study and research into legal ethics and values, thereby enhancing the profession's and society's appreciation of their importance.
Epstein Becker Green has created a fellowship, in conjunction with an American University-based law professor, Mary Clark, who focuses on these issues.
