On Thursday, October 14, FSU Law celebrated the admirable 2021 Alumni Awards recipients virtually. Shannon Bream (’96) received the Distinguished Alum Award for her professional accomplishments and outstanding service; Pamela Burch Fort (’77) was honored with the Alumni Association Service Award for her distinguished service to the College of Law over an extended period of time; Florida Senator Loranne Ausley received the Class of ’66 Award for distinguished service by a non-alum to the law school and the community; and Alan Abramowitz (’89) and Judge Steve Leifman (’87) both received the Exemplary Public Service Career Award for their dedication to public service and their exceptional character, integrity, humility, professionalism, and the highest regard for ethics. Award recipients are pictured above, clockwise from top left. The event was an opportunity to bring to light some incredible work being done by the honorees to benefit the law school, their communities, the state, and the nation. The virtual setting, which was utilized last year for the first time due to COVID-19, allowed honorees to make more robust remarks and family members and friends from around the country to attend the celebration. The 2021 award recipients talked about their remarkable careers and the impact that FSU Law has had on them professionally and personally. Many other alumni and friends also spoke about the reasons why recipients were so deserving of recognition.

Congratulations to the award recipients and many thanks to the alumni who worked on the awards nomination processes.
