6/10/08--Boston College Law School is pleased to announce that Professor Paul Tremblay has received the 2008 Emil Slizewski Excellence in Teaching Award.

The award was established in Professor Emil Slizewski's name. Slizewski, affectionately known as "The Slew" to his many admirers and friends, passed away in 2002 at the age of 83. He is best remembered by generations of BC Law students, faculty, and administrators for his legendary courses in trusts, estates and estate planning. One of the School's best-loved teachers, his lifetime of service to the school was recognized at the school's 70th Anniversary event in 2001 with the announcement of the Excellence in Teaching Award.

Paul R. Tremblay is a Clinical Professor of Law and Law Fund Research Scholar at Boston College Law School who teaches clinical courses at the Boston College Legal Assistance Bureau, as well as classroom courses in legal ethics and professional responsibility. Previously, Professor Tremblay had served on the Executive Committee of the AALS Section on Professional Responsibility, was a Senior Attorney at the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles and an instructor at UCLA School of Law, and has been a member of the Boston Bar Association Ethics Committee since 1993. In addition, Professor Tremblay also launched a new transactional clinical course at Boston College Law School--the Community Enterprise Clinic--the mission of which is to support economic progress in under-resourced neighborhoods and to offer a vibrant educational experience to students interested in transactional work, community economic development, and business law.

Professor Tremblay has considerable interest in professional ethics, interdisciplinary collaboration, and legal services for the poor, and has published in several scholarly journals on matters of professional ethics. His forthcoming article, "Public Health Legal Services," will appear in 2008 in Volume 15 of the Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law & Policy.
