2016 Recipient

Christine HallCHRISTINE C. IIJIMA HALL received her Ph.D. in social psychology from UCLA in 1980. Before retiring in 2013, she served as a higher education administrator in academic and student affairs and human resources for over 35 years. She has authored numerous books chapters and journal articles.

Dr. Hall has served on the Committee for Superior Court, the Arizona Bar Board of Governors and the Arizona Judicial Council under Chief Justices McGregor and Berch. Berch recommended Dr. Hall’s appointment to the recent Arizona Supreme Court’s Arizona State Bar Mission & Governance Task Force. 

Dr. Hall believes her most valuable contribution was her work on the Judicial Selection Advisory Council for the Phoenix Municipal Courts under Chief Presiding Judge Roxanne Song Ong. Because the courts interact with many diverse populations, Dr. Hall feels her role helped provide culturally competent and culturally sensitive judges to the Phoenix bench.
