Brita Horvath, Baker & Daniels' Manager of Diversity and Pro Bono, was recognized as an honoree at Equal Justice Works' third annual Public Interest Recognition Dinner recently. The event raises funds for the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis' Loan Repayment Assistance Program, helping graduates working in public interest repay their student loans.
Horvath, who received her J.D. from the IU School of Law-Indianapolis in 2002, was honored for her achievements in pro bono and the promotion of equal justice. As Manager of Diversity and Pro Bono at Baker & Daniels, Horvath oversees all firm initiatives and strategies to advance the firm's commitment to diversity and pro bono, including equal justice initiatives.
"Brita is very deserving of this recognition," said Baker & Daniels partner Jon Laramore, who introduced Horvath at the event. "Her work in the area of public interest has bettered our community and our law firm. She is an asset to Indianapolis."
Other honorees included Marion Superior Judge David Shaheed, '84, and ACLU-Indiana Executive Director Gil Holmes, '99. The keynote speaker for the evening was Justice Theodore R. Boehm, former Justice of the Indiana Supreme Court.
