SALT LAKE CITY -- Two Utah attorneys have been honored by the Utah State Bar for advancing the rights of women and minorities in the legal profession.
The Utah State Bar says Wednesday Lauren Scholnick and Nathan Alder received awards for their contributions to low-income and minority communities across Utah.
Scholnick, a founder of Strindberg & Scholnick, LLC, was honored for her victories in sexual harassment and race harassment cases.
She also worked with the Street Law Project, which oversees law students working pro-bono to help low-income citizens.
Alder, who received the Raymond S. Uno Award for the Advancement of Minorities in the Legal Profession, was honored for his decade-long involvement with the Utah Minority Bar Association and for mentoring new members.
