National Immigration Law Center Honors Munger Tolles

Munger, Tolles & Olson will receive the Legal Advocate award at the National Immigration Law Center’s 4th Annual Awards Dinner on October 21, 2010. The honor is in recognition of Munger Tolles' efforts to ensure a fair day in court for low-income immigrants. Over the past several years, Munger Tolles has been co-counsel with NILC in a class action challenging SB 1070, Arizona’s anti-immigration law; brought a class action challenging an FBI name check procedure that caused huge delays for persons seeking naturalization; and has worked to defend AB 540, California’s law that exempts undocumented immigrant graduates of California high schools from paying out-of-state tuition. The NILC is dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of low-income immigrants and their family members.
