Pond Lehocky law clerk Andrew Warren was recently awarded the Irvin Stander Award from the 2018 Workers’ Compensation Section of the Philadelphia Bar Association. Mr. Warren currently attends Temple University Beasley School of Law and interns as a law clerk at Pond Lehocky’s Center City office.
The Irvin Stander Award is given in memory of well-known Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation Judge and founding member of the Philadelphia Bar Workers’ Compensation Section, Irvin Stander. Mr. Stander also founded the first law school course on Workers’ Compensation at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law, a course that Managing Partner Sam Pond taught this past semester.
The prestigious award recognizes an outstanding graduating law student who has demonstrated legal acumen in the area of workers’ compensation law, and who embodies the principle of “striving mightily while treating colleagues and judges as friends.” Mr. Warren will receive a monetary prize to cover the cost of the annual bar examination, as well as a plaque commemorating this honor.
Former FBI agent and keynote speaker James R. Fitzgerald will present the award to Mr. Warren at the Workers’ Compensation Section Awards Luncheon on April 20, 2018 at the Ritz-Carlton in Philadelphia.
