Every year, Case Western Reserve University School of Law honors the achievements of distinguished alumni, faculty and prominent members of the legal community by inducting new members to the Society of Benchers – the law school’s Hall of Fame. 

Established in 1962, the Society of Benchers inducts new members on the basis of extraordinary achievement and dedication to the highest principles of the legal profession, as voted on by their peers. New members will be inducted on Sunday, Oct. 9, as part of Homecoming & Reunion Weekend. 

This year, we celebrate 12 new members of the Society of Benchers.
