The University of Oklahoma College of Law and the Oklahoma Criminal Defense Lawyers Association invite you to attend a reception honoring Cindy Foley and the presentation of a replica Lord Erskine trophy to the College of Law Legal Clinic on Tuesday, May 8, 2012, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Sneed Lounge. Please join the University of Oklahoma College of Law and the Oklahoma Criminal Defense Lawyers Association as we commemorate the awarding of the OCDLA's 2010 Lord Erskine to Cindy Foley.
Cindy passed away on August 10, 2010. Upon her passing, Cindy's friends and family reflected upon her life and career as a criminal defense lawyer and mentor to law students who participated in the University of Oklahoma's Criminal Defense Clinic. Cindy was an amazing criminal defense lawyer in her own right and an inspiring mentor to many of our colleagues who are now criminal defense lawyers, prosecutors and judges.
On Tuesday, May 8, 2012 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. we will meet at the University of Oklahoma Law School in the Sneed Lounge to dedicate a replica of Cindy's Lord Erskine Award to be placed on display at the Law School. Food and drink will be provided. Please take a little time on May 8 and raise a glass with us in celebration of the life and legacy of one our most inspiring members.
