On March 14, Almudena Bernabeu, an attorney who has spent 15 years pursuing justice for victims of human rights abuses across Latin America, Africa and the world, was honored with the 2012 Katharine and George Alexander Law Prize from Santa Clara University School of Law.
The award is given to top lawyers who have used their legal careers to help alleviate
injustice and inequity anywhere in the world.
Bernabeu works at the San Francisco-based international human rights Center for Justice and Accountability, where, among the cases she is prosecuting, is the one against Salvadoran officials allegedly responsible for the massacre of six Jesuit priests and two female employees in 1989.
The award ceremony was held at Santa Clara University’s Harrington Learning Commons.
