Three Law Faculty Members Recognized By Louisville Bar Organizations for Community Engagement in 2014Posted November 20th, 2014 by Ross Bradley
On three occasions during 2014, Louisville Bar organizations recognized members of the law faculty for their service and contributions to the legal profession in Louisville. On February 25, Professor Cedric Merlin Powell, received the Louisville Bar Association’s annual Trailblazer Award, given each year during Black History Month at the Bar Association. On October 2, Professor Enid Trucios-Haynes received the Lee A. Webb Award during the Louisville Bar Association Hispanic Heritage month program. On November 13, Professor Grace Giesel received the Women Lawyers Association of Jefferson County Achievement in Excellence (Lifetime Achievement) Award. Ordinarily these awards are given to judges or members of the practicing bar. Having these three awards given to members of the Brandeis School of Law faculty demonstrates that the law school does not exist in an “ivory tower.” This recognition reflects the many contributions law school faculty members make to the Louisville legal community.
