Neal Katyal

Neal Katyal was recently announced as the 2021 recipient of the Washington Lawyers' Committee's annual Wiley A. Branton Award. The Branton Award is bestowed upon members of the legal community whose careers embody a deep and abiding commitment to civil rights and economic justice advocacy. 

The former Acting Solicitor General of the United States, Mr. Katyal is a partner at Hogan Lovells, and the Paul and Patricia Saunders Professor of National Security Law at Georgetown University Law Center. He has the distinction of having argued more Supreme Court cases in U.S. history than any other attorney of color, breaking the record held by Thurgood Marshall. Most recently, Mr. Katyal served on the prosecution team in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd. Mr. Katyal has also served as a law professor for over two decades at Georgetown University Law Center, where he was one of the youngest professors to have received tenure and a chaired professorship in the university's history. He has also served as a visiting professor at both Harvard and Yale law schools.

SABA-DC congratulates Mr. Katyal on this new honor.
