Client Perspectives

Read below to learn first-hand from our clients about our partnerships.

THE FRESH AIR FUND

“It’s a pleasure to watch our Career Awareness students learn about the judicial system first-hand, ask thoughtful questions and become inspired from the mock trials. We notice a very positive change in the youngsters after they receive such personalized, one-on-one attention. The expertise and passion that Cravath employees bring to support our Career Awareness Program is tremendous. Thank you, Cravath!”

—Jenny Morgenthau, Executive Director of The Fresh Air Fund

LAWYERS’ COMMITTEE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER LAW

“The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law salutes Cravath’s longstanding commitment to diversity and pro bono efforts at the highest levels. Cravath has been a leader in the fight for racial justice and over the years has worked valiantly with the Lawyers’ Committee on major cases involving educational opportunities and workplace access and equality of treatment. Moreover, the firm has not wavered in contributing its resources to ensure capacity within the public interest legal community to advance equal justice for all. Cravath has been in the forefront of promoting the ideal that it is indeed incumbent upon all of us to embrace opportunities to effect change and to improve lives and communities. The firm’s stellar pro bono support continues to exemplify President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 ‘call’ to the private bar to champion the fight to fulfill our nation’s constitutional commitment to equality and opportunity for all.”

—Barbara R. Arnwine, Executive Director, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law

SLJ/THE ADAMS STREET FOUNDATION

“In September 2004, the Urban Assembly School for Law & Justice (SLJ) opened its doors to the historically least-served students in this city. We had strong convictions about how students learn best, but there were huge obstacles to realizing our vision. Enter Cravath. By the end of our first year, the Department of Education was hailing SLJ as the best new school in the city, a model to be duplicated. In August 2009, the New York Post ranked SLJ the #1 unscreened public high school in the city. It is entirely clear to us that behind SLJ’s immense success is a pyramid-capped skyscraper full of compassionate, hardworking people who believe that our students can and must achieve their potential.”

—Shannon Curran, Principal of SLJ, and Joe Pinto, Executive Director of the Adams Street Foundation
