Two College of Law faculty members have been recognized recently for their outstanding contributions in the legal field.
Nancy Johnson, the College's law librarian and professor of law, is the recipient of this year's Southeastern Chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries (SEAAAL) Service to SEAALL Award. The award is given to the chapter member who has made special, significant and sustained contributions to the chapter.
In addition, the Georgia Association of Black Women Attorneys (GABWA) has named College of Law Professor Bernadette Hartfield as the recipient of the Bensonetta Tipton Lane Award for Commitment to Family at the recent GABWA' annual Founders Awards Gala. The award recognizes an individual who has used her professional and personal leadership to advance family and child-related programs and initiatives, including those that focus on education, domestic violence, health care, child advocacy, adoption and other issues impacting the family.
Congratulations to both Professors Johnson and Hartfield on their achievements in service.
