Albany Law School will be closed today until 4pm due to the weather.
Albany Law School President & Dean Alicia Ouellette will be presented with the Capital District Women's Bar Association's Hon. Judith S. Kaye Distinguished Attorney Member Award during the chapter's annual Installation Dinner on June 7.
The award, named for the first woman to serve as Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals, "honors an outstanding attorney member for a singular outstanding achievement, longstanding significant involvement, or a lifetime of constancy of purpose in advancing the status of women in the law and in society," according to the CDWBA. It is the highest award given to a member.
Four of five awards were won by Albany Law School alumnae — a group that includes Dean Ouellette, Class of 1994. The other recipients include:
— Nancy Sciocchetti ’86, who will receive the Kimberly A. Troisi-Paton Leadership Award.
— Madalyn DeThomasis ’14, who will receive the Outstanding New Lawyer Award.
— Copps DiPaola, PLLC, a firm of all Albany Law graduates, which will be presented with the Carol S. Knox Family Friendly Employer Award.
The dinner at Franklin Plaza in Troy, N.Y. is being held to welcome the CDWBA's 38th president, Rebekah Nellis Kennedy ’07.
