Tropin wins Learned Hand Award

Harley S. Tropin, president of KozyakTropin& Throckmorton, received the American Jewish Committee’s 2016 Judge Learned Hand Award.

Nearly 400 legal, business, and community leaders attended the gala dinner at Jungle Island. AJC established the annual award in 1964 to recognize leaders in the legal profession for their excellence and contributions to the practice of law and the community at large.

“Harley has set a high standard for passion for the practice of law, along with commitment to service to the community,” said Brian Siegal, director of AJC’s Greater Miami and Broward Regional Office. “We are honored to recognize Harley’s contributions to the profession and the improvement of our community, adding his name to an illustrious roster of legal luminaries whose professional and personal achievements greatly enhance our society.”

The highest honor given by AJC within the legal profession, the Judge Learned Hand Award recognizes the memory of Judge Learned Hand, noted for his significant decisions in constitutional law and antitrust. The recipients of this award are people who embody much of what the judge represented: the rights of the individual and the importance of democratic values in an orderly society. This philosophy also sums up a major thrust of AJC’s work and the programs it has promoted since its inception in 1906.
