Executive Director Noreen Farrell Accepts Top Women in Law Award

May 9, 2013 | by
In Los Angeles last night ERA Executive Director Noreen Farrell was inducted into a prestigious group of women lawyers selected by the editors and publisher of the Daily Journal.

Among the group of 75 litigators and 25 corporate attorneys, Noreen stands out as a public interest attorney. Also on the list of honorees are ERA Board member Gay Grunfeld (partner at Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld LLP), famed former San Francisco city attorney Louise Renne and current California attorney general Kamala Harris.

Farrell was recognized for her leadership of ERA as well as her lawyering in Bojorquez v. ABM Industries,  Mansourian et al. v. Regents of of the University of California, and Brust et al. v. Regents of the UC. In describing to the Daily Journal why she took these cases on, Noreen said ERA picks cases based on areas in school and the workplace where there’s an “epidemic of injustice.”
