Bill Edlund Award 2020

The Ninth Judicial Circuit Historical Society and the Northern District Historical Society honored the memory of Bill Edlund, by presenting this year’s Bill Edlund Award for Professionalism in the Law to Jerry Braun on February 6, 2020.

The award was jointly created by the NJCHS and the Northern District Court Historical Society to honor our beloved Board member, William I. Edlund.

The Edlund Award recognizes:

  • Excellence as a Lawyer in Written and Oral Advocacy;
  • Civility;
  • Commitment to the Legal Profession; and
  • Leadership in the Community

Jerry Braun is one of the founding partners of Farella Braun + Martel LLP, where he has worked since its founding in 1962. In addition to his long and distinguished legal career spanning nearly six decades, Jerry has been a tireless supporter of the legal profession, including his work on behalf of The Other Bar, a network of recovering lawyers, law students and judges throughout California.

We celebrated both Bill Edlund and Jerry Braun with a short program, and a reception in the great hall of the James R. Browning Courthouse.
