Dean Roberts Honored for Leadership, Service to the Profession
IU McKinney Dean Gary R. Roberts was named a Distinguished Barrister as part of the legal newspaper Indiana Lawyer’s Leadership in Law awards program. He will be honored at a reception on May 2 in downtown Indianapolis.
The newspaper recognized the dean, noting that “six-year tenure at the law school has been called transformational, with the most obvious sign the renaming of the Indianapolis school in 2011 after Robert H. McKinney.” The newspaper also cites the addition of 15 faculty members and a doubling of the student financial aid budget among Dean Roberts’ accomplishments at the law school, along with his volunteer work in the community, including with the Indianapolis Humane Society.
Dean Roberts was honored with the Distinguished Barrister award along with IU McKinney alumni Judge L. Mark Bailey, ’82; David J. Cutshaw, ’82; Michael F. Drewry, ’79; James D. Johnson, ’87; Kevin McGoff, ’80; J. Joseph Tanner, ’87; Richard A. Waples, ’84; Judy Woods, ’87. Two alumni were also named Up and Coming Lawyers: Briana Clark, ’07; and Oni Harton, ’08.
