SAN FRANCISCO – JAMS, the largest private provider of mediation and arbitration services worldwide, today announced that the Hon. Lynn Duryee (Ret.) has received the John J. Meehan Alumni Fellow Award from the University of San Francisco School of Law. She accepted the award on May 17 at the Alumni Graduates Dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel.
“She has always gone above and beyond to teach, advise and mentor our students,” said incoming Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor Susan Freiwald. “She has personally taken the time to provide individual feedback on a weekly basis to a class of more than 75 students. She really cares and it has not gone unnoticed.”
“I am very happy to receive this award,” said Judge Duryee, who joined JAMS in 2014. “It is essential that we continue to provide support and guidance to the next generation of legal practitioners. I’ve gotten to know some very special students who I am sure will make a significant contribution to this world. I feel privileged that I have been able to take a glimpse into their bright futures.”
Before joining JAMS, Judge Duryee served as a Superior Court judge in Marin County for more than 20 years, serving as the Presiding Judge from 2006-7. She returned to teach at USF nearly five years ago.
The John J. Meehan Alumni Fellow Award recognizes those who mentor USF law students and is presented annually by the university’s Law Society.
