Nearly 400 UNM School of Law alumni, faculty, staff, and supporters attended the 2013 Distinguished Achievement Awards Dinner on Friday, October 25th at the UNM Student Union Building. The event was a huge success, raising more money than ever for student scholarships. The $73,000 raised at this year’s event will fund several UNM School of Law scholarships.

Each year, a committee of the Alumni Association Board of Directors issues a call for nominations and undertakes a painstaking process to select honorees for the year. Following are this year’s honorees:

  • Peter Johnstone, Class of 1974 (posthumous award)
  • Ted Occhialino, Professor Emeritus
  • Patricia Madrid, Class of 1973
  • Norman Thayer, Class of 1960
