The Law Society of Ontario will confer a medal on Jeff Berryman, UWindsor associate vice-president academic, in recognition of his career achievements and contribution to the legal profession at its annual awards ceremony, in May in Toronto.
The award honours outstanding service in the profession, whether in the area of practice, in the academic sphere, or in some other capacity where the service is in accordance with the highest ideals of the legal profession.
Holding the rank of distinguished university professor and a former dean of the Faculty of Law, Prof. Berryman is an exemplary academic role model, the society says in its citation:
“He is recognized both nationally and internationally as a scholar in his field of expertise — contracts, remedies, and restitutions. He has provided exceptional leadership at the University of Windsor and continues to provide invaluable inspiration to his students and the faculty.”
Law society treasurer Malcolm Mercer says the awards recognize important contributions and important leadership.
“Each recipient provides a worthy example of professional service,” he says. “We look forward to honouring them at our annual awards ceremony with the Law Society’s highest awards of recognition.”
