Cirelli Receives Meehan Award

May 10, 2011

In recognition of his service to the law school and students in the years since graduating, the USF School of Law named Lawrence M. Cirelli BS ’78, JD ’84, partner at Hanson Bridgett LLP, the 2010–2011 John J. Meehan Alumni Fellow.

“Larry is a role model for providing the support that our students and graduates need, particularly in these difficult times,” Dean Jeffrey Brand said. “Larry helps instill a sense of the ‘possible,’ so critical to our students who want to be ethical, skilled professionals capable of making a difference. Those are qualities that define Larry and we honor him for his generosity of time and spirit.”

The John J. Meehan Alumni Fellow Program at the University of San Francisco School of Law was established in 1998 to recognize a distinguished alumnus who has contributed to the growth and development of future lawyers, and who has served as a mentor to the profession. Cirelli was honored at a reception in the Zief Law Library April 28.

“USF School of Law graduates are known for their ability to hit the ground running on day one of their careers,” Cirelli said. “I benefited from this hands-on approach when I was a student, and I’m happy to play a role in ensuring that students continue to have access to helpful mentors.”
