Dean's Advisory Board Awards

The College of Law is proud of the many and varied accomplishments of its alumni. Each year the Dean’s Advisory Board honors two alumni with the presentation of its Distinguished Alumna/us Award and its Outstanding Service Award. In addition to these awards, the Advisory Board also presents the Distinguished Faculty Award and the Woods & Aitken Outstanding Student award. Awards are presented annually in April at the Advisory Board Awards Luncheon, an event that is open to all alumni.
