Professor Edward C. Stark '79 selected to "America's Top 100 Civil Defense Litigators"

Congratulations to Professor Edward C. Stark '79 on being selected to "America's Top 100 Civil Defense Litigators" for Southern California in 2018! 

Only the top 100 qualifying defense litigators in each state receive this honor each year. Members are nominated by their peers and other elite attorneys in the community or identified through third-party research before passing a rigorous multi-phase screening. This process ensures that those selected are the cream of the crop in their profession who best exhibit excellence and the highest ethical standards. What an accomplishment! 

On receiving this honor, Professor Stark says, "As a trial attorney, I’ve been fortunate enough to be selected as a Super Lawyer each year from 2011 through 2018, and I was also selected to be among the “Top 100 Civil Defense Litigators” in 2018. However, as important and meaningful to me as those awards, was my receiving the 2017 (Adjunct) Excellence in Teaching Award at Southwestern. Truly a great honor!"

Professor Ed Stark"As a student at Southwestern, I was extremely impressed with the knowledge, experience, and expertise of the professors who helped me look through the same lens they used to examine the law. I am honored to teach among these truly gifted and accomplished faculty and strive to inspire the lawyers of tomorrow who will graduate from this institution."
