San Francisco—The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area (LCCR) has honored Cornerstone Research with the Robert G. Sproul Jr. Award. LCCR presents the award annually for exemplary provision of legal services to underrepresented communities. A firmwide Cornerstone Research team, led by Vice President Dina Older Aguilar, analyzed discipline and school assignment policies in Modesto City Schools (MCS), located in central California.

We are honored to receive this recognition from LCCR, and delighted that the case has helped to implement positive change in MCS.

“One of Cornerstone Research’s core values is giving back to the communities in which we live and work. In particular, we are committed to supporting a diverse population of students who comprise our future workforce,” said President and CEO Michael E. Burton. “We are honored to receive this recognition from LCCR, and delighted that the case has helped to implement positive change in MCS.”

Cornerstone Research will be honored at LCCR’s 32nd Annual MLK Awards Dinner at the Hyatt Regency at 5 Embarcadero Center in San Francisco on Friday, February 1, 2019.
