Student Awards

The Dean of Students Award for Highest Academic Achievement recognizes academic excellence in the classroom.  The award has two requirements: (1) the student must earn the highest grade in the class; and (2) the course instructor must confirm the student’s grade reflects the highest level of academic achievement.  We are proud to celebrate these students and their commitment to excellence in the study of law.
