Marjorie Cohn of TJ Law
From a press release: "Professor Marjorie Cohn of the Thomas Jefferson School of Law is the 2005 recipient of the San Diego County Bar Association Service to Legal Education Award. Every year the SDCBA encourages San Diego’s lawyers to reach out to the community during Law Week. The service awards recognize individuals, law firms, agencies and community-based organizations that have made significant achievements and have had a positive impact on the public, the profession and the SDCBA. This year’s Law Week celebration, held this week, includes programs and events to honor American values and ideals such as liberty, equality and democracy. The celebration ends with a luncheon held at the SDCBA’s headquarters in downtown where Cohn will receive her award on Friday, May 6, 2005.
Cohn has taught at Thomas Jefferson since 1992, teaching criminal law and procedure, constitutional law and international human rights law. Cohn is a news consultant for CBS News and a legal analyst for Court TV, and she also provides legal and political commentary on BBC, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, NPR and Pacifica Radio. She lectures throughout the world on international human rights and U.S. foreign policy and is co-author of the book Cameras in the Courtroom: Television and the Pursuit of Justice. Last year’s September issue of the National Jurist labeled Cohn as a “star professor.”
