Before we get to this week...
Let's congratulate and appreciate the four outstanding Indiana Law alumni who received our Distinguished Service Award at a standing-room only ceremony Friday. Javier Becerra '17, Shontrai Irving '03, Laura Walda '09, and Mark Wright '89 were each acknowledged for "above and beyond" service to their communities and the Law School. Indeed, one recipient is reported to have performed a perfect cartwheel en route to the podium! The ILA editor encourages you to read more about these alumni and the role of the DSA in the Law School community.
