Don Nguyen (Class of 2007), has won a Legal Rookie of the Year Award from the New York City Law Department Corporation Counsel, marking the first time since 2004 that such an accolade has gone to a CUNY School of Law alumnus. Don has worked in the Brooklyn Tort Division for just over one year.
Each year, the Corporation Counsel awards roughly four or five people with the honor among 60 to 70 new attorneys, according to Michael Shender, senior counsel in the Corporation Counsel office. Michael (Class of 2003) received the award in 2004.
