Washington, DC (May 1, 2019) — Epstein Becker Green (“EBG”) is pleased to announce that Emily A. Shivetts was awarded the Robert D. Reif Fellowship in Legal Ethics and Professional Values (“Fellowship”) at a reception at the firm’s Washington, DC, office on April 29, 2019.
EBG created the Fellowship in 2012 with the assistance of American University Washington College of Law. The mission of the Fellowship is to honor the memory of EBG’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.
After a review of essays submitted on topics involving legal ethics and professional values, three finalists were interviewed. The Selection Committee chose Ms. Shivetts to receive this year’s Fellowship award for her paper titled “He Makes What!? Filling Gender Pay Disparity and Promotion Gaps Left Behind by Title VII and the Federal Equal Pay Act.” Ms. Shivetts presented an overview of her paper at the reception.
The firm and Selection Committee would also like to acknowledge and congratulate the following finalists for their submissions:
