10.27.15 —  The National Law Journal, in collaboration with the Connecticut Law Tribune, has named five Northeastern Law graduates to their "Boston Rising Stars" list which features exemplary young lawyers in the Boston area. The honorees will be profiled in an upcoming supplement to the National Law Journal on November 9, and will be recognized at an event in Boston on Thursday, November 12.

An independent judging panel—composed of public interest lawyers, law professors, general counsel, legal consultants and private attorneys—scored dozens of nominees on several key measures: development of the law; advocacy and community contributions; service to the bar; and peer and public recognition. Law Tribune and National Law Journal editors then reviewed the findings and made selections from among those with the highest scores.

Northeastern honorees include: 

Christina Licursi '08, Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks
Beth Myers '09,  Rodgers, Powers & Schwartz
Marshall Senterfitt '07, Goulston & Storrs
Michael Stefanilo '12, Brody, Hardoon, Perkins & Kesten
