Walter Yoka CHOSEN 2016 Champion of Justice
Walter Yoka was honored by being chosen as a 2016 Champion of Justice from Loyola Law School. The prestigious Champions of Justice award is a highly selective accolade honoring only two recipients annually for their excellence and contributions to the cause of justice. "Each year Loyola's Civil Justice Program honors two individuals whose distinguished legal careers are marked by professional excellence, technical proficiency and uncompromising integrity. With lifetimes of service, striving to hold those accountable who are responsible, they inspire us to imagine a more perfect system of justice. They are defenders of the Constitution, guardians of our liberty, advocates of just causes (no matter how unpopular), protectors of the powerless and wise counselors in our society. They are public servants, unafraid of controversial cases. These are attorneys of undisputed stature. They are, in the broadest sense of the words, Champions of Justice."
