Professor Kathleen M. Burch ACLU of Georgia 2009 Volunteer Attorney Award


At a luncheon on October 8, 2009, the ACLU of Georgia honored Professor Burch with the 2009 Volunteer Attorney Award for her vision and initiative in creating the two Civil Liberties seminars at the law school. Civil Liberties: Litigation engages students in the litigation of an actual ACLU case; Civil Liberties: Legislation has students working on live legal issues being addressed by the Georgia General Assembly. Professor Burch taught both classes last year. She and her students were lauded for their contributions to the ACLU’s efforts to defend civil liberties.
