Harriet Bouslog Biography | Chapter 7: Communism

Mark Bernstein, a University of Hawaii graduate, became legendary civil rights attorney Harriet Bouslog’s last partner, when he returned to Honolulu in 1979, having graduated from Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles. After Ms. Bouslog’s retirement in 1980, he went on to establish what is now one of Honolulu’s oldest solo legal practices operating out of the historic Bank of Bishop Building, which is now known as the Harriet Bouslog Building on Merchant Street, where his practice concentrated on intellectual property and complex commercial litigation. Mr. Bernstein has been listed as one of The Best Lawyers in America every year from 1995 in the field of Music Licensing. He now is the President of the Harriet Bouslog Labor Scholarship Fund.
