WFU School of Law Dean Blake D. Morant receives Chief Justice John Marshall Life Achievement Award

Dean Blake D. Morant was honored with the Chief Justice John Marshall Life Achievement Award by the Judge Advocates Association and Judge Advocates Foundation on Tuesday, May 15.

The Chief Justice John Marshall Lifetime Achievement Award is the Judge Advocate Foundation’s highest award. The Foundation established the Award commemorating Chief Justice Marshall to honor an individual who once served as a judge advocate, left active duty military service, and subsequently made great contributions and achievements outside the military legal system.

Both organizations commended a number of active duty and past JAG officers at the event held at the Army Navy Club in Arlington, Va. Dean Morant was recognized for his exemplary service and outstanding contribution to the military and civilian legal profession.

“I can only hope to live up to the standards set by such a magnanimous recognition,” said Dean Morant in response to his award.

In addition to serving in the Army’s Judge Advocate General Corps, Dean Morant has been elected to the Association of American Law Schools Executive Committee for a three-year term. He has also served in numerous other positions in the American Association of Law Schools and the American Bar Association.
