MORGANTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA — Marjorie McDiarmid, Steptoe & Johnson Professor of Law & Technology, is the recipient of the state’s 2016 Distinguished Pro Bono Service Award.
The West Virginia State Bar and Legal Aid of West Virginia present the award annually to an attorney or law firm whose efforts go above and beyond the call of duty.
McDiarmid was recognized for her many years of pro bono work and support for legal service organizations in West Virginia. She received the award recently at the annual meeting of the West Virginia State Bar in Charleston.
“Not only is Professor McDiarmid a respected professor at the West Virginia University College of Law, she is also generous in donating her time to help Legal Aid of West Virginia as an organization, and to serving our clients as a pro bono attorney,” said Gretchen Lewis of Legal Aid of West Virginia.
