Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center Honors Brown Rudnick with 2012 North Star Award

Boston, MA, April 23, 2012 – Brown Rudnick, an AmLaw 200 firm with offices in the US and Europe, announces that Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center presented the 2012 North Star Award to Brown Rudnick LLP and its Brown Rudnick Center for the Public Interest in recognition of the Firm’s remarkable philanthropy and community service, and specifically for its ongoing support of Thompson Island’s programs that serve economically disadvantaged urban youth.  Brown Rudnick CEO Joseph Ryan accepted the award during Thompson Island’s 10th Annual Evening Expedition Gala on April 12th.

Brown Rudnick has been a significant partner to Thompson Island since 2007, and the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation has awarded Relationship Grants to Thompson Island for five consecutive years.  These grants allow hundreds of inner-city students to have multiple day/overnight learning expeditions on the island. Additionally, each year, Brown Rudnick Summer Associates participate in the Corporate Volunteer Program, donating their time to preserve and maintain our outdoor island classroom campus. The Firm also has hosted Career Days for Boston Public School partners, and during the year, Firm volunteers often visit the island for community service activities. And, the Foundation’s Board Retreat was held on the island in 2011. Finally, Brown Rudnick lawyers provide pro bono legal assistance to Thompson Island when needed.
