Celebrating Southwestern Alumni on 2022 Southern California Super Lawyers List

Please join us in congratulating our Southwestern alumni on the 2022 Southern California Super Lawyers list! This year, Southwestern had three alumni recognized on the "Top 10" list, twelve alumni on the "Top 100" list, six alumnae on the "Top 50 Women" list, and one alumnus on the "Top 50 Orange County" list. 

The selection process is rigorous and thorough. According to Super Lawyers, every nominated lawyer is assessed via a patented multiphase selection process, including a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent third-party research evaluation of candidates across twelve key categories, and peer reviews by a highly credentialed Blue Ribbon Panel of attorneys. This detailed selection process ensures a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys. No more than five percent of lawyers in the state are selected to receive this honor.  

Congratulations to all of our Southwestern alumni who made the 2022 Southern California Super Lawyers list!
