SLU LAW Professors Receive Honors

September 30, 2015

Two SLU LAW professors are being recognized for their outstanding contributions to the community and legal profession.

Roediger and Stephanie Lummus ('12) of ArchCity Defenders with their Pro Bono Awards from the Missouri Bar Foundation on Oct. 7.

Associate Professor Brendan Roediger, supervisor in the Litigation Clinic, has earned acclaim on multiple occasions this semester. In August he was awarded the Edna M. Taylor Client Service Award at the Legal Services of Eastern Missouri 2015 For the Common Good Awards. This award is given to an individual who has displayed great commitment to serving indigent and disadvantaged in our community.

In the coming weeks he will receive two additional awards. The Missouri Bar will present Roediger with a Young Lawyer's Section Pro Bono Award on Oct. 8. He is being recognized for his hard work and dedication to delivery of legal services to those who cannot otherwise afford it. On Oct. 16 the St. Louis Bar Foundation will honor him with a Spirit of Justice Award. These awards recognize lawyers, non-lawyers and programs that have demonstrated accomplishment, leadership and integrity to foster and maintain the rule of law, and in facilitating and promoting improvement of the administration of justice.

Associate Professor Justin Hansford is the recipient of the 2015 Junior Faculty Teaching Award from the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT). The award recognizes a professor who demonstrates a commitment to justice, equality and academic excellence. SALT commended Hansford’s commitment to advocacy work with African-American men both in the classroom and community, making him an important participant in the struggle for justice. The ceremony takes place in Anaheim, California on Oct. 2.

Congratulations Professor Roediger and Professor Hansford!
