Judge Robert A. Katzmann, on the occasion of being honored with the Federal Bar Council's Learned Hand Award, told his audience: "This evening I speak to you about what we, together, bench and bar, can do to help meet an urgent, pressing need - the need for adequate representation for a vulnerable population of human beings - immigrants. Immigrants often come to this country in fear, fleeing from persecution, escaping from poverty, not knowing the language, not knowing to whom to turn for competent legal advice, all the while working to make a better life."
