Law School Unveils Portrait of Edwin Render

Longtime law professor Edwin Render, who died last January, was honored Aug. 26 in a ceremony attended by faculty, staff and Render’s family and friends.

A large portrait of Render was unveiled before the group. The portrait will hang in the Cox Lounge at the school.

Render was a fixture in the law school for more than 45 years. He taught property, evidence and labor law and was a founding member of the Carl A. Warns Jr. Labor and Employment Law Institute, which has been renamed the Warns-Render Labor and Employment Law Institute in his honor.

“He was such a fine man and impacted the careers of so many people,” said Dean Susan Duncan. “It seems so odd to start the school year without Ed.”

A smaller version of the portrait was given to Render’s family.
