OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Continuing Education of the Bar (CEB) announced the 2016 recipients of the annual Spirit of CEB Award on September 29, 2016, at the California State Bar's Annual Meeting in San Diego. In attendance were the two winners: Commissioner Katherine E. Stoner, of the Monterey County Superior Court, and Peter S. Muñoz, of Reed Smith LLP in San Francisco. Both were featured in a video to commemorate this year's award.
Hundreds of attorneys donate their time and expertise to CEB as authors and editors of its legal publications and as speakers for its programs; their generosity and public spirit are valued greatly by CEB and so in 2005 the Spirit of CEB Award was initiated to acknowledge recipients' service to the California legal community and their contributions to CEB's extensive resources for the state's attorneys, judges, and other legal professionals.
Since 2004, Commissioner Katherine E. Stoner has authored chapters in two CEB Family Law books, California Domestic Partnerships and Same-Sex Marriage and California Child Custody Litigation and Practice and has provided invaluable insight and analysis year after year as an update author for these titles. In addition, she has spoken at CEB programs on child custody and support issues. Peter Muñoz has worked with CEB for over twenty years as an author, speaker, and contributing editor on more than forty programs, books, updates, and CEB Reporter articles. Coauthor of two CEB Real Property titles, Real Estate Finance Practice: Strategies and Forms and California Real Property Sales Transactions, he has also updated the latter publication for fifteen years. Both recipients exemplify CEB's commitment to the education and development of the California legal community.
Says CEB Executive Director Kelly Lake, "The spirit of CEB is about gratitude. It's about recognizing the fact that thousands of hours, which otherwise would be billable hours, are given freely by people who believe in what we do, who want to be part of something that is greater, and who want to serve the legal community. The Spirit of CEB Award is really about saying thank you and that we acknowledge how big a contribution you are making."
CEB is a program of the University of California that is cosponsored by the State Bar of California. CEB's mission is to provide practical legal resources to help California lawyers achieve success. For more information about the Spirit of CEB Award or CEB products, visit ceb.com.
