The Jean Allard Glass Cutter Award, named for the first woman to chair the ABA Business Law Section, is presented annually to an exceptional female business lawyer who made significant contributions to the legal profession and the section.
“Kathleen J. Hopkins, as with the 20 women who have come before her, encompasses everything the award stands for,” said Martin E. Lybecker, chair of the Business Law Section. “[Hopkins’] accomplishments are many, her professionalism and dedication second to none and her love of the section is admired and felt by all.”
