Each year, Justice for All Night celebrates the accomplishments of College of Law students, raises money for the Pro Bono Board's Summer Public-Interest Fellowship Program and honors a local attorney who is committed to equal justice.
This year's honoree is Howard R. Cabot, a partner in the international law firm of Perkins Coie who has extensive trial experience in a wide variety of complex cases, including high technology, securities, antitrust and intellectual property. He is a member of the National Board of Trial Advocacy and National Institute for Trial Advocacy, and is nationally recognized for his litigation expertise.
Keenly aware of both the privileges and responsibilities of a lawyer, Cabot uses his skills in a variety of civic and pro bono capacities. He is a longtime adjunct professor at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law and serves as Judge Pro Tem in the Maricopa County Superior Court. He has taken on a number of pro bono cases, most recently representing a Sudanese detainee incarcerated at Guantanamo Bay and charged with aiding 9/11 terrorists. The man was held for nine years, before Cabot and a team of military lawyers represented him in legal proceedings that resulted in a plea bargain.
"It's important, especially in difficult times, that we make sure we don't sacrifice the kind of values that make our country as special as it is," Cabot says.
Justice for All Night celebrates the pro bono and public interest community and helps law students provide legal services to individuals who otherwise could not afford them. Proceeds from the event fund fellowships in which students perform pro bono legal work for a variety of local and national agencies and organizations. Past fellowships include:
- Federation of Women Lawyers (Kenya)
- Crime Victims' Legal Assistance Project
- National Whistleblowers Center
- Disability Rights Legal Center
