The University of Oregon School of Law is awarding Stoll Berne attorney Nadia Dahab with its 2018 Oregon Law Outstanding Young Alumni Award. The award honors those graduates who have made significant contributions to their community, the University of Oregon School of Law, or the legal professions through their legal career. The award is granted to individuals within their first 10 years following graduation.
Nadia is currently serving as Immediate Past President of the Federal Bar Association’s Oregon Chapter and sits on a variety of committees for the Campaign for Equal Justice, Oregon Trial Lawyers Association, and Oregon Women Lawyers. She has coached for the Classroom Law Project’s “We the People” mock trial competitions since 2012 and is a board member of the Arab American Cultural Center of Oregon.
Most recently, Nadia, as a cooperating attorney to the ACLU of Oregon, represented the Innovation Law Lab in a lawsuit to gain and keep access to counsel for immigrant detainees at the Sheridan, Oregon federal detention center. Nadia’s pro bono work on behalf of Innovation Law Lab has helped to provide counsel for 80 immigrant men for their successful completion of asylum-screening interviews. As part of this work, Nadia spoke at the Families Belong Together rally in June 2018 in Portland.
Nadia’s practice at Stoll Berne focuses on both trial and appellate advocacy. She has experience in matters relating to complex business disputes, securities fraud, employment, property law, and the environment.
The award will be officially presented on September 7, 2018 at the University’s Alumni Dinner.
