New Haven, Conn. — Four environmental leaders and co-founders of the Natural Resources Defense Council have been selected to receive Yale Law School’s highest honor — the Yale Law School Association Award of Merit — during its Alumni Weekend 2010 in October.

James Gustave Speth, Richard Ayres, Edward Strohbehn Jr. and John Bryson, all members of the Yale Law School Class of 1969, were cited for their pioneering role in creating the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in 1970 and helping to write, along with other NRDC lawyers, some of America’s bedrock environmental laws.
