Thomas Larkin was inducted into the Fellows of the American Bar Foundation (ABF) this month on recommendation of his peers. Admission to The Fellows is limited to one third of one percent of the lawyers in America, and acknowledges attorneys who have demonstrated "outstanding dedication to the welfare of their communities and to the highest principles of the legal profession."
The American Bar Foundation was founded in 1952 by the American Bar Association, and is now recognized as the premier sociolegal research institute in the country. The ABF dedicates itself to expanding the study of law and its role in society; research faculty include James Heckman, 2000 Nobel winner in Economic Sciences, Austan Goolsbee, economic advisor to the current White House, and Steven Levitt, author of Freakonomics.
