Harvard Law School Professor Charles Ogletree has been awarded the 2001 Charles Hamilton Houston Medallion of Merit by the Washington Bar Association. The award was presented in honor of Ogletree's work promoting social justice and equality.
In his welcoming address, Dean Robert C. Clark called the incoming class, trailblazers as important as the Law School's first class in 1817. Clark noted that the incoming J.D. class will be divided into seven sections instead of the traditional four. This will result in smaller class sizes and greater student-faculty interaction.
