Sullivan gets AmLaw award

Kathleen Sullivan is a recipient of the American Lawyer's 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award as reported in From Law School to the Courtroom, Kathleen Sullivan Has Been an Educator at Every Turn

Sullivan, a partner at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan in Los Angeles and New York, was a professor at two prestigious law schools and dean of one of them, built an appellate practice at the world’s largest litigation-only firm, mentored an army of younger lawyers, argued about 200 appellate cases, including 11 before the U.S. Supreme Court, and worked on significant pro bono cases throughout her career.
Sullivan’s career could be cut in two—the 28 years she spent in legal education, while handing appeals on the side, and the past 16 years building an appellate practice at Quinn Emanuel.
