The Law Center recently honored five alumni with this year’s Paul R. Dean Award for leadership contributions to the law school and the legal profession.

The alumni received the awards during the Law Center’s Reunion Weekend gala Oct. 16 and were recognized during an annual Law Center meeting on Nov. 2.

The 2010 Dean Award recipients are:

  • Dolores Silva Smith (L’75), director of the Federal Reserve Board’s Consumer and Community Affairs Division until her retirement in 2004
  • Bruce Blume (L’80), founder, chairman and CEO of the Blume Company
  • Michael Jones (L’85), a partner with the law firm Kirkland and Ellis
  • Thomas Hardiman (L’90), judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit
  • Dean Emeritus David McCarthy Jr. (L’60, L’62), who served as Law Center dean from 1975 to 1983.

The award is named for Paul R. Dean, the Law Center’s 10th dean from 1954 to 1969. He passed away in 2008.

“He’s the founding dean of the modern law school,” McCarthy said. “It’s a distinct honor to get an award named for Paul R. Dean.”
