Professor Lesnick Receives AALS Deborah L. Rhode Award
Howard Lesnick, Jefferson B. Fordham Professor of Law

HOWARD LESNICK, JEFFERSON B. Fordham Professor of Law, received the Association of American Law School’s Deborah L. Rhode Award in January 2004. The award, given annually to a full-time faculty member who has made a contribution to increasing pro bono and public service opportunities in law schools through scholarship, service, and leadership, was created to honor those who have dedicated significant efforts towards increasing access to justice. Lesnick, the architect of Penn’s much-heralded Public Service Program – the first and only program to receive the American Bar Association’s Pro Bono Publico Award – has devoted much of his work since 1965 to developing students’ recognition of the potential of law practice to serve the public good.
