Public Service Awards

The Poverty Law Center recognizes students, faculty, staff, and alumni who have demonstrated a commitment to social justice for the poor.  Recipients are chosen from nominations submitted to the Gillis Long office.  Awards are presented at the annual spring Distinguished Speaker Lecture.

At the heart of the Poverty Law Center, and a primary reason for its success, is William P. Quigley, L'77, Janet Mary Rilery Distinguished Professor of Law and Director of the Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice, who has served as the center's director since 1991.

The Gillis Long Poverty Law Center has been a great success and is a tremendous resource for Loyola. Over the past 15 years, the center has made major accomplishments in the area of poverty law, and we hope to continue to do so for many more years to come.
