Congratulations are in order for Professor Melody Daily at the University of Missouri - Columbia, who has been selected to receive the Missouri Bar Foundation's Spurgeon Smithson Award for this year. She will receive the award officially this September at the Annual Meeting of the Missouri Bar.
According to the Missouri Bar's website:
"The Spurgeon Smithson Awards were established in 1976 by bequest of the late Mr. Smithson, an outstanding Kansas City lawyer. The awards are made annually by the Missouri Bar Foundation to Missouri judges, teachers of law and/or lawyers deemed 'to have rendered outstanding service toward the increase and diffusion of justice among [all people].'"
