School of Law honors exemplars

Three individuals who have made extensive contributions to the legal profession and the community are the recipients of Emory Law’s 2008 Distinguished Alumni Awards: John Dowd ’65L; Susan Hoy ’74L; and Teri Plummer McClure ’88L. This year’s recipients will be honored at an awards ceremony Nov. 13 at Gambrell Hall.

The Emory Law Distinguished Alumni Award was established in 1985 to recognize outstanding alumni who have achieved distinction in legal practice, teaching, research or public administration and who have demonstrated distinguished service to Emory Law, the Emory Law Alumni Association or Emory University.

“The outstanding caliber of our graduates makes the selection process for the Distinguished Alumni Awards exacting and thoughtful,” says Dean David Partlett. He called the three alumni “exemplars of lives well lived in our profession of service.”
