Munger, Tolles & Olson Wins ACLU Equal Justice Award

Munger, Tolles & Olson was recognized as a 2018 Equal Justice Award recipient by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California on June 8, 2018.

The Munger, Tolles & Olson lawyers who worked on the case include Laura D. Smolowe, Jacob S. Kreilkamp, Ankur Mandhania and Adele M. El-Khouri. Mr. Kreilkamp is a director of the ACLU Foundation of Southern California.
