Byron Conway (’13) receives book award at 2012 Massachusetts Black Judges Conference
Byron Conway (’13) was one of nine law students throughout the state to receive a book award at the 2012 Massachusetts Black Judges Conference on April 25, 2012, at the John Adams Courthouse in Boston.
The annual event honors one second-year student from each law school in Massachusetts who has demonstrated a commitment to public service. Law schools nominate candidates based upon academic achievement, leadership qualities, potential trial skills and need, and the Book Award Committee selects the winners from the list of nominees. Winners of the award are given stipends to cover the costs of their law books for the following year.
"I am delighted that the Massachusetts Black Judges Conference selected Byron Conway to be the 2012 recipient from BU Law of its Book Award," said Associate Dean for Student Affairs Chris Marx. "This is a real honor, and it recognizes Byron's significant academic accomplishments, leadership positions —including president of the BU Law Black Law Students Association this year— and his commitment to community service both locally and in his home town of Detroit, Michigan."
