The Honorable Michael B. Calvin Memorial Fellowship
Judge Michael Calvin graduated from Saint Louis University School of Law in 1975. In 1988, Judge Calvin became a circuit judge, and in 1999 he was elected by his colleagues as presiding judge, becoming the first African-American in that position. In 2008, he retired from the bench, and went to work as of counsel to Spencer Fane Britt & Browne. This fellowship was established to honor Judge Calvin and his impact on the legal community by providing a summer stipend for a student working locally in a low-paying or non-paying public interest job.
