Claudia Diamond, the law school’s director of academic support, and Isabell May, assistant director of writing services at UB’s Achievement and Learning Center, received the University of Baltimore’s “Outstanding Collaborative Program” award for their work to create the School of Law’s Legal Writing Center. Diamond and May were given the award on June 10 during the university’s annual Student Affairs Retreat.
UB’s Division of Student Affairs distributes an annual award in seven categories, including the Outstanding Collaborative Program (or initiative) award. Diamond and May’s work to create the Legal Writing Center was evaluated on the basis of innovation and creativity; contribution to student development and/or professional development; contribution to UB; and timeliness of the topic or endeavor.
The Legal Writing Center is now closed for the semester, but law students interested in meeting with faculty to review a writing project over the summer should contact Claudia Diamond at email@example.com.
