Jenner & Block Partner Terri L. Mascherin is a 2018 recipient of the Justice John Paul Stevens Award.  Given by the Chicago Bar Association and Chicago Bar Foundation, the award honors Justice Stevens, a Chicago native and an alum of Jenner & Block, for his lifetime effort to improve the system of justice and his active participation and dedication to the CBA.  The award is presented annually to lawyers who best exemplify Justice Stevens’ commitment to integrity and public service in the practice of law.  Ms. Mascherin and eight other recipients will be honored at a celebration on September 27, 2018, at The Standard Club.  For reservations or more information on the event, contact Tamra Drees at tdrees@chicagobar.org or 312-554-2057.
