Judge William A. Ingram
Judge William A. Ingram served as a Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California for twenty-six years, including three years as its Chief Judge. The William A. Ingram Inn of Court, which draws its pupils from Stanford, Santa Clara and Lincoln Law Schools, was renamed to honor Judge Ingram, one of the Inn’s founders, and Judge Ingram’s family designated the Inn to receive memorial contributions to endow this Memorial Symposium.
Judge Ingram was a mentor to many lawyers and judges in our community, and the Inn and this symposium seek to promote the ideals of civility, collegiality, and professionalism that he personified.

The Northern California Innocence Project is pleased to invite you to our Seventh Annual Justice for All Awards Dinner!
The Justice for All Awards Dinner provides the resources for NCIP to free innocent prisoners and reform the criminal justice system. At the dinner we thank supporters, like you, and celebrate the accomplishments of the exonerees you have helped to free.
This year we honor:
Leadership Award: Denise Foderaro Quattrone. Denise’s leadership and unwavering determination to exonerate the wrongfully convicted and make policy changes to prevent future wrongful convictions inspires others to act on behalf of the wrongfully convicted.
The Cookie Ridolfi Freedom Award: George Souliotes. George was wrongfully convicted of arson and triple murder and spent 16 years in prison. George has demonstrated courage, fortitude and grace in facing down and transcending gross injustice. This award was named for NCIP co-founder Professor Kathleen “Cookie” Ridolfi.
Pro Bono Award: Jim Brosnahan, Morrison & Foerster LLP. Jim courageously stepped forward to represent George Souliotes at trial with fewer than two months to prepare. To have Jim, one of the most respected and recognized trial lawyers in the country, lead this trial was the most incredible gift imaginable.
Justice Award: Police Chief Scott Seaman. Chief Seaman is a tireless advocate for improving the methods law enforcement agencies statewide use to collect and preserve eyewitness identification evidence. His efforts will help to prevent wrongful convictions based on misidentification.
We hope to see you there! Get your table or tickets early as space is limited. Tickets can be purchased here.
