Georgetown Prof. Honored With D.C. Bar's Brennan Award
Georgetown Law Professor Peter Edelman has been awarded the District of Columbia Bar Association's prestigious William J. Brennan Jr. Award. Edelman, who has an extensive public interest background, was commended for his service as chair of the newly established District of Columbia Access to Justice Commission, which is charged with addressing the increasing unmet legal needs of city residents. Under Edelman’s leadership, the commission has launched a coordinated planning process aimed at ensuring that all of the District’s residents have equal access to justice. Among other courses, Prof. Edelman has taught Georgetown's Federal Legislation Clinic, Public Interest Lawyering, and the Social Welfare Law and Policy Seminar, a year-long program in which seminar students do extensive field work and produce a paper based on their experiences.
