The annual awards reception recognizes individuals and organizations that have been supportive of LSEM's mission of providing civil legal services and equal access to justice for the low-income community. Twelve equal access to justice champions were recognized at the event.
"We look forward to recognizing those who embody the spirit and principles of equal access to justice," said Dan Glazier, LSEM executive director and general counsel. "Everyone being honored has demonstrated boundless enthusiasm and deep devotion to helping the underserved in our community."
Ammann received the Melton M. Lewis Equal Justice Award, which is given to those who have shown exceptional commitment to LSEM and have contributed to their programs in a significant way.
As the director of the Legal Clinics, Ammann works to provide invaluable legal services to low-income people and nonprofit organizations.
The Melton M. Lewis Equal Justice Award is an inaugural award named in memory of Melton M. Lewis, who worked with LSEM for more than 35 years, and provided exemplary service as a staff attorney, managing attorney and associate director during that time.
