A recent graduate of Indiana University School of Law – Bloomington has been given the first Terry and Judy Albright Pro Bono and Public Interest Award. The law firm Baker & Daniels has sponsored the award in honor of the couple.

The award is named after law school graduate Terry Albright and his wife, Judy. Terry has worked as a senior trial attorney in the Indianapolis office of Baker & Daniels for the last four decades and is currently involved with the state’s alternative dispute resolution movement. He has helped lead the growth in commitment to access to justice and public service through pro bono and public interest work in the bar and IU School of Law – Bloomington.
