Munger Tolles Named Silver Champion in Bay Area Urban Debate League Fundraising Challenge

Munger, Tolles & Olson earned the title of Silver Champion in the 2015 Champions of Diversity Challenge hosted by the Bay Area Urban Debate League (BAUDL). Through attorney donations and a grant from the Paul Davis MTO Associate Fund, the firm raised more than $14,000 to benefit the BAUDL, a non-profit organization that builds debate teams in urban public schools with limited resources. The campaign collectively raised more than $125,000 to help the BAUDL further its mission of increasing students’ academic performance, expanding college and career opportunities and training a generation of 21st century leaders.

Munger Tolles attorneys Adam I. Kaplan and Thane Rehn accepted the award on behalf of the firm at the BAUDL gala on May 19, 2015. The firm is a longtime supporter of BAUDL, and Mr. Kaplan serves on the Legal Pipeline Committee of the BAUDL’s Advisory Council.
