Law Day Award winners announced

Law Day honorees this year include CT Governor Dannel Malloy '80, James A. Champy ‘68, Barbara Kaban ‘98, William McCormack ‘67, Professor Hugh Ault, and Stephen J. Imbriglia ‘80. The event will take place on May 9, 2013 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Boston. Established by presidential proclamation in 1958, Law Day is a long-standing tradition across the nation and at Boston College Law School. Its purpose is to celebrate the most important goals of the legal profession: to advance equality and justice, encourage observation and enforcement of the law, and to foster respect for law and an understanding of its essential place in the life of every citizen.
