Johnston, Allison & Hord was proud to sponsor the 23rd Annual Gressman and Pollitt Oral Advocacy Awards at UNC School of Law on April 18, 2018

UNC School of Law congratulates 39 first-year law students who received a Eugene Gressman & Daniel H. Pollitt Oral Advocacy Award on April 18. The annual awards, given by faculty of the Writing and Learning Resources Center, recognize outstanding oral advocacy in the first-year Research, Reasoning, Writing, and Advocacy (RRWA) Program. This year marked the 23rd anniversary celebration of the awards. The RRWA program, now in its seventh year as a full-year, six-credit program, ranks No. 12 in legal writing by U.S. News & World Report.
The awards' sponsor is the firm of Johnston, Allison & Hord of Charlotte. Carolina Law alumnus and former partner at Johnston, Allison & Hord, Michael L. Wilson '96, worked with Professor Emerita Ruth McKinney '88 to establish the awards in 1995. Gary J. Welch '94, a partner at Johnston, Allison & Hord, spoke at the ceremony and congratulated this year's recipients. The awards honor Eugene Gressman, William Rand Kenan Jr. Professor of Law Emeritus, and Daniel H. Pollitt, Graham Kenan Professor of Law Emeritus, who both passed away in 2010.
