Julie Su to Receive NAPABA Trailblazer Award

The National Asian Pacific American Bar Association announced on Aug. 14 that California Labor Commissioner and former Skadden Fellow Julie Su ('94) will receive its highest honor, the Daniel K. Inouye Trailblazer Award. "Trailblazers have demonstrated vision, courage, and tenacity, and made substantial and lasting contributions to the Asian Pacific American legal profession, as well as to the broader Asian Pacific American community," the association said. Julie also was quoted in a front-page New York Times article about "a flood of recent cases ... that accuse employers of violating minimum wage and overtime laws, erasing work hours and wrongfully taking employees' tips" ("More Workers Are Claiming 'Wage Theft,'" Aug. 31).
