Because I will be giving the keynote address at the event, I am very happy that I will be present to see Rachel Wohl receive this award! (I met Rachel and spent some time with her in 2010, when she and I were at Berkeley Law for the Mindful Lawyer Conference.) Congratulations to her for recognition well-deserved.The email announcing the award came from David Simison, chair of the ADR Section of the Maryland State Bar. He wrote:
