Dean Epps has been named to the 2015 Lawyers of Color Power List, which brings together the most influential minority attorneys and non-minority legal advocates from across the nation. It is the fourth time Dean Epps has been included on the list in as many years. The full report will be released by Lawyers of Color Magazine on March 18, 2015.

The Power List is a comprehensive catalog of the nation’s most influential minority attorneys and non-minority legal diversity advocates. It includes corporate general counsel, law firm managing partners, law school deans, and the highest ranking government attorneys. On March 18, 2015, honorees will be toasted at a cocktail reception where Lawyers of Color will present Legacy Awards to Tom Sager, Ballard Spahr partner and former DuPont Company General Counsel and John W. Daniels Jr., Quarles & Brady partner and chairman emeritus for their exceptional careers and efforts to advance diversity in the legal profession.

In conjunction with the publication and reception, Lawyers of Color will also host the First Annual Power Summit, which will be held at George Washington Law School.  The symposium is co-sponsored by GW Law’s Asian/Pacific American Law Student Association (APALSA), Black Law Student Association (BLSA), Hispanic Law Student Association (HLSA), and South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA), and will consist of a series of roundtable discussions with law school deans, general counsel, social justice attorneys, and law firm partners.

We are proud to salute this esteemed group.”
