Torys congratulates Cornell Wright, who received the 2009 Ann Wilson and Rob Prichard Award for Community and Professional Service from the University of Toronto Faculty of Law at its Distinguished Alumnus Dinner on November 19.
The U of T's faculty of law bestows this honour to "a graduate in the first 10 years of his or her career who demonstrates the highest standards of professional integrity, excellence and leadership, and who has made a significant contribution to the legal profession and/or community through his or her public interest work, pro bono activities and/or community service."
In a news item, the U of T's faculty of law noted that the award recognizes Cornell's "dedication to mentoring at-risk and marginalized high school students in Toronto. A graduate of the JD/MBA program, Wright has volunteered with Law in Action Within Schools, the Faculty of Law's high school outreach program, since its inception in 2005."
