Pepperdine School of Law alumnus Brian E. Schield (JD ’79), a partner at Squire Sanders, was recently recognized for his work with the AIDS Legal Services Project by the Los Angeles County Bar Association (LACBA) on June 29 in Los Angeles, California.
Schield was presented with the Honorable Benjamin Aranda III Outstanding Public Service Award at the installation and awards dinner for the new officers of the LACBA Board of Trustees.
“LACBA encourages its members to reach out and help the least among us and provides support through the LACBA foundation to a number of worthy public interest causes of which AIDS Legal Services Project is an important part,” said Pepperdine law professor Christine Goodman, a member of the LACBA Board of Trustees. “Brian put in years of service with this group and has been a dedicated volunteer.”
The AIDS Legal Services Project has focused on the diverse legal needs of people living with HIV and AIDS by providing referrals to volunteer attorneys for one-on-one legal representation. The organization has provided millions of dollars of donated legal services to thousands of clients.
Schield has more than 25 years of experience in business-related immigration matters. His clients range from large international companies and organizations to individuals and families, with a particular focus on Europe and the Pacific Rim.
