Natasha Songonuga, a Director in the Financial Restructuring & Creditors’ Rights Group in the Wilmington, DE office of Gibbons P.C., is a member of the event steering committee responsible for selection of scholarship recipients and organization of the 2015 Haile L. Alford Memorial Breakfast, which recognizes the life and legacy of the first African American woman to serve on the Superior Court of Delaware. Ms. Songonuga is Vice-President of Special Events for the Multicultural Judges & Lawyers (MJL) Section of the Delaware State Bar Association, which is hosting the event.

The event will also include one hour of ethics credit. For more information about both the event and the award, please see the MLJ Section page of the Delaware State Bar Association website.
