Syracuse Law Honors Award Program

The Syracuse University Law Alumni Association (SULAA) and the College of Law presents Syracuse Law Honors, an award that celebrates “distinguished achievements in any field of endeavor” by members of the Syracuse Law family – alumni, current and former faculty and staff, students, parents and friends – for service ‎to the College of Law, the legal profession, Syracuse University, or the world ‎at large, not limited just to a recipient’s professional life and work.

Honorees are selected by the Dean of the College of Law in conjunction with the Board of Directors of SULAA, based on recommendations made by SULAA. Recipients of the award will be honored at
2017 Law Honors Recipient the
