Honorable Gerald Bruce Lee
United States District Judge
in the Eastern District of Virginia
the Jurisprudence Award by the The Fairfax County Bar Association (FBA)
on Nov. 1, 2017
The Jurisprudence award is the highest award given by the FBA to recognize exceptional contributions to our judicial system. A singular honor, it is not presented annually, but has been awarded over years to attorneys and judges who have distinguished themselves and honored our profession in a variety of meaningful ways.
Judge Lee was recognized for his substantial contributions as a judge in the Fairfax Circuit Court and on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia as well as his longstanding efforts to promote diversity in the legal profession and to inspire young people to overcome challenging circumstances.
Speakers included the Honorable Rossie D. Alston, Jr. of the Court of Appeals of Virginia, the Honorable Dennis J. Smith, Retired Chief Judge of the Fairfax County Circuit Court and others who casually roasted Judge Lee. A good time was had by all.
