Annual Bernard E. Witkin, Esq., Award Virtual Reception

Join us on October 8th at the 2020 Witkin Award Virtual Reception to congratulate this year’s Witkin Award Honorees.

We will be honoring

  • The Honorable William B. Enright (Posthumously) for Excellence in the Adjudication of the Law;
  • Vickie E. Turner, Esq. for Excellence in the Practice of Law;
  • Gregory E. Knoll, Esq. for Excellence in Public Service; and
  • Lilys D. McCoy, Esq. as the recipient of our Excellence in Legal Education.

Online registration is now open!

The Witkin Award Reception is free this year but please keep in mind that this event is the primary fundraiser of the San Diego Law Library Foundation. We are kindly asking for $100 as a suggested donation. Now more than ever, the Library needs your support. The resources that are needed to serve those in need of legal resources have been strangled by the dramatic drop in filing fees as the direct result of coronavirus mitigation measures. Filing fees are the primary source of funding for the Law Library and when those drop precipitously as they have in 2020, it puts the library in dire straits. Please support and give generously to this vital institution by donating here:

We provide an electronic Program Book to attendees and would like you to consider placing an ad in that book or becoming an event sponsor. Click to Register Now or download the pricing and order information form for additional Sponsorship and Ticket Opportunities. If you select a program book ad, you may email your logo to  (or more elaborate ad, if you prefer) and we will size it according to the ad spec you select and voilà, you have your “ad.” You will also be listed as an advertising sponsor.

The monies we raise will further the library’s efforts to be the premier Community Center for Legal Information, a place where county residents, businesses, and professionals can learn how to best use the law to access justice, solve problems, and pursue opportunities.

About the Witkin Award

The Witkin Award is presented annually to honor members of the San Diego legal community. This year our honoree categories are: Excellence in the Adjudication of the Law, Excellence in the Practice of Law, Excellence in Public Service, and Excellence in Legal Education. The Witkin Fund is used for the benefit of the San Diego Law Library. The Witkin Award Ceremony is, appropriately enough, the primary fundraiser for the Fund since the Witkin Awards celebrate members of the legal community and their good works.
