Hochman Award in Tax Law Goes to Class of 2017 Justin Casey
In May 2017, UCLA Law awarded Justin Casey ’17 the Bruce I. Hochman Award for Excellence in the Study of Tax Law. The $15,000 award is presented annually by UCLA Law tax faculty to a graduating student who has demonstrated outstanding proficiency. Casey graduated Order of the Coif, and earned a certificate in the Business Law and Policy specialization offered by UCLA Law’s Lowell Milken Business Law and Policy. He also served as president of UCLA School of Law’s Sports Law Federation. In November, he will join the Century City office of Proskauer Rose, working in the firm’s corporate practice. The award honors Bruce I. Hochman, a leading tax practitioner who was a member of the first UCLA Law graduating class of 1952.
