AVENTURA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / June 16, 2023 / Ron L. Book, a renowned Florida attorney and a powerhouse in the state’s political landscape, was recently inducted into the 2023 Tulane Law School Hall of Fame. Book was honored for his legal career and decades-long pro bono work and advocacy for low-income and homeless communities, as well as for victims of child abuse.
“Induction into our Hall of Fame is the highest honor that Tulane Law School can bestow, and there is no one more deserving of that recognition than Ron Book,” said Dean David D. Meyer, Tulane Law School. “Ron is a lawyer and advocate of formidable talent, yet he pairs that power with a heart larger than anyone I know. Ron is passionate about using his talents and time selflessly to serve those who are most vulnerable in our society and most in need. He is the perfect exemplar for what we hope our graduates will become, and we are intensely proud to count Ron as one of our own.”
“Ron has been an active member of the legal community for many years, and his contributions to the field have been widely recognized,” Meyer added. “His election to the Tulane Law School Hall of Fame is a prestigious honor that reflects his exceptional legal skills as well as his deep commitment to helping others.”
“I am deeply honored to be elected to the Tulane Law School Hall of Fame,” said Book, a graduate of the University of Florida and Tulane Law. “Tulane has played a significant role in my career as a lawyer, and I am grateful for the opportunities it has provided me. I look forward to continuing to serve the legal community and making a positive difference in the lives of those around me.”
Book’s successful lobbying work has led to millions of dollars in funding for organizations such as Best Buddies, which provides mentoring for individuals with unique abilities; Casa Familia, an affordable housing opportunity for adults with unique abilities; the Children’s Home Society Foundation of Florida; the Alonzo Mourning Family Foundation; and others. In honor of his tireless work in helping local organizations, Book received the Florida Bar President’s Pro Bono Service Award in early 2023.
