February 10, 2022
Julian Zebot, a partner in Maslon's Litigation Group, has been selected to receive Grinnell College's 2022 Alumni Award. The award recognizes individuals who embody Grinnell College’s mission of lifetime learning and service. Nominated by their classmates and peers, recipients have distinguished themselves by their service to their careers, their community, and/or the college.
The alumni council noted that Julian, a probate and trust law expert and chair of Maslon's Pro Bono Committee, is known for his commitment to underserved populations in need of legal representation. "A case in point is Julian’s diligent work to vacate the death row sentence of a man in Texas," the council wrote. It also called out the Minnesota Supreme Court's appointment of Julian to serve on the Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board.
Julian and his fellow recipients will be celebrated June 4 during Grinnell's 2022 reunion.
