| The Center for Advanced Legal Studies announces the selection of Professors Andrew Beckerman-Rodau and Michael L. Rustad as the joint recipients of this year’s Charles P. Kindregan Award for Extraordinary Contributions to Advanced Legal Studies and Continuing Legal Education.
This award, named in honor of Professor Charles P. Kindregan, Jr. of Suffolk University Law School, was established in October 2002, the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Center for Advanced Legal Studies. It is designed to honor those who have given exceptional service to Suffolk’s Advanced Legal Studies and to other providers of continuing legal education. The recipients to date have been Professor Charles P. Kindregan, Jr., Professor Karen Blum, Attorney Alex Moschella, Attorney Monroe Inker, Honorable Edward Ginsburg, Honorable Nancy Gertner and Dean Paul Sugarman.
Professor Michael L. Rustad, Co-director and founder of the Intellectual Property Law concentration, helped create a curriculum of CLE programs for ALS in what was then a new and developing area of the law. As the Thomas Lambert Jr. Professor of Law, Michael has created and presented at each Lambert Conference since 2002, keeping the memory of Tom Lambert alive. Professor Rustad has also lectured throughout the country at conferences on a variety of subjects.
Professor Andrew Beckerman-Rodau, Co-director of the Intellectual Property Law Concentration, expanded the Concentration by adding a Patent Law Specialization program. He has also created and presented in 25 programs in just eight (8) years since coming to Suffolk. His energy and dedication have made Suffolk the leading provider of Intellectual Property CLE and have augmented our reputation with the legal community. The depth and scope of involvement in CLE of both of these Professors are testament to their dedication to legal education in the Academy and the Bar. Suffolk University Law School has been fortunate to have been the beneficiary of their wisdom, enthusiasm and dedication. Certainly Advanced Legal Studies is grateful.
There will be a reception on Friday, November 20 at 5:00 on the 4th floor in the Faculty Dining Room for presentation of the award. The public is invited. Please r.s.v.p. to 617.573.8627 or email email@example.com
