The ABA Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities (IRR) is proud to announce that Ronald Tabak will receive the 2014 Robert F. Drinan Award for Distinguished Service to the Section.
The award, named in honor of the late Father Robert F. Drinan, a former member of Congress who chaired the Section from 1990 to 1991, recognizes service to the Section that advances its mission of providing leadership to the legal profession in protecting and advancing human rights, civil liberties, and social justice.
The Drinan Award will be presented to Mr. Tabak during a reception on Friday, February 7th at the 2014 ABA Midyear Meeting in Chicago.
