The American Bar Association's Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession is a diverse group of committed lawyers promoting leadership and economic opportunities for racially and ethnically diverse lawyers within the ABA and the legal profession. The Commission announced that it will be presenting awards to a number of individuals on February 12, 2011 during the ABA Mid-Year Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.
Among those being honored will be Professor Charles Calleros of the Sandra Day O'Connor School of Law at Arizona State University. Also being honored is his colleague, Kevin Gover, Director of the National Museum of the American Indian, who is also a professor at ASU. They are the fourth and fifth professors from the ASU College of Law to receive the award in its 16-year history.
