Joe Boniwell
This 3L was recently selected as the American College of Bankruptcy 2013 Distinguished Law Student for the Ninth Circuit. The award includes an expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., for the annual College of Bankruptcy meeting March 14-16, 2013, where the College will induct its Class XXIV at the Smithsonian Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture, and will honor the 2013 Distinguished Service Award recipient, the Honorable Burton R. Lifland. "Joe not only has a lively mind for bankruptcy but also embodies a strong commitment to professionalism and pro bono service," said UCI Law Prof. Katherine Porter, who teaches bankruptcy and consumer law. She is especially proud of his recognition because only one student per region is selected for this honor.
