NCADA to Receive DRI’s Janata Award at Annual Meeting in New Orleans

The North Carolina Association of Defense Attorneys (NCADA) is pleased to announce its selection of the Rudolph A. Janata Award presented by DRI, the Voice of the Defense Bar.  This national Award recognizes a state or local defense organization that has undertaken an innovative or unique program contributing to the goals and objectives of the organized civil defense trial bar.  The Award will be presented at the 2019 DRI Annual Meeting in New Orleans on Friday evening, October 18th.

Taking advantage of today’s societal discourse, NCADA’s Diversity Committee has implemented CLE programming that is relevant both professionally and personally to our members and their clients.  These social trending topical discussions range from the #MeToo movement to a discussion on whiteness in America, and from uncovering bias in the practice of law to leveraging diversity in litigation.

NCADA President Lach Zemp observes “This award is testament to the forward-looking programming and hard work of the past and current leadership of the Diversity Committee and the Board.”

NCADA has previously been recognized by DRI with the Janata Award in 2002, and is the only state defense group to date to be presented DRI’s Diversity Award in 2005 and 2012.  Please follow this link to read the nomination letter

The NCADA brings together civil trial attorneys to promote the exchange of information, ideas, and litigation techniques, and to strengthen the practice, improve the skills, and enhance the knowledge of lawyers defending individuals and businesses in North Carolina.
