Joseph Glynn Recognized by the National Immigrant Justice Center with a 2024 Rising Star Award

Munger, Tolles & Olson litigation associate Joseph Glynn has been recognized by the National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) with a Rising Star Award for advancing access to justice through pro bono legal services. The award will be presented at NIJC’s 25th Annual Human Rights Awards in Chicago on June 4.

Joey is recognized for his representation, alongside litigation partner Elaine Goldenberg, of a client from Liberia in successfully appealing an adverse immigration ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.

NIJC hosts the Human Rights Awards each year to honor human rights champions and business, civic, and community leaders. The event convenes hundreds of attendees from the legal, corporate, and philanthropic communities to promote NIJC’s mission of advancing a more humane immigration system through litigation and policy advocacy.
