Judge Arlin Adams and Al Dandridge Receive Legal Intelligencer Lifetime Achievement Awards

On April 10, 2013 by Schnader in Litigation

PHILADELPHIA – On April 10, 2013, in honor of The Legal Intelligencer’s 170th anniversary, the publication honored some of the most important active members of Pennsylvania’s legal community by presenting them Lifetime Achievement Awards. Schnader’s Judge Arlin M. Adams and Albert S. Dandridge, III, were among the 27 awardees.

The Legal Intelligencer selected the group of noteworthy individuals to represent the people who have helped shape the law in Pennsylvania, whether through their work on the bench, assisting those in need of legal services, building a firm or other means.

To select the awardees, The Legal Intelligencer consulted their staffers and members of the legal community for recommendations of attorneys to consider. After several rounds of discussion and consultation, the list was pared down to first recipients of The Legal Intelligencer’s Lifetime Achievement Award. “We feel these attorneys represent the best the Pennsylvania legal community has to offer. They have collectively moved forward the legal profession in the state, helped foster the legal education of younger attorneys and stood as examples of some of the best virtues of Pennsylvania attorneys,” explained The Legal Intelligencer through its blog.

Information about each award recipient will be included in the special anniversary magazine to be published later this spring and they will all be honored at a celebratory dinner on June 27, 2013.

Before joining Schnader, Judge Adams served on the bench of the U.S. Court of Appeals from 1969 to 1987. His professional and civic leadership has been evident throughout the length of his distinguished career. In 2001, Susquehanna University created the Arlin M. Adams Center for Law and Society at Susquehanna to honor his many achievements. The University of Pennsylvania Law School and the Annenberg Foundation established the Arlin M. Adams Professorship on Constitutional Law in his honor in 2005.

Mr. Dandridge is chair of the Firm’s Securities Practice Group and Chief Diversity Officer. He was recently elected vice chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association. Before joining Schnader, Mr. Dandridge served the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as associate director of small business and international corporate finance in the SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance. Mr. Dandridge is a decorated Vietnam Combat Veteran with the U.S. Marine Corps and was awarded, among many honors, the Bronze Star with Combat “V” for Valor and the Purple Heart.
