Marshall Recipient of Northwestern Service Award

Lawrence C. Marshall, professor of law, David and Stephanie Mills Director of Clinical Education, and associate dean for public interest and clinical education, was honored earlier this year with Northwestern University’s 2007 Service to Society Award, as selected by the Alumni Awards Committee. The award “recognizes the voluntary efforts of alumni in various arenas that contribute to the advancement of causes or the improvement of society, thereby reflecting favorably on the University.” Marshall received his JD summa cum laude from Northwestern University School of Law in 1985 and later became a professor of law as well as cofounder and legal director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions where he represented many wrongly convicted inmates. He joined the Stanford Law School faculty in 2005.
