Dayton Law Honors CALI Award Winners

Eighty-two Dayton Law students received the CALI Excellence for the Future Award in a March 31 ceremony in the Courtroom. CALI (The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction) recognizes the highest-scoring student in each University of Dayton School of Law course.

“Our students make Dayton Law a very special place,” said presenter Lori Shaw, associate dean for academic affairs and professor of law. “All of our students have unique gifts and each leads us in his or her own way. But today, I want to thank and congratulate those who lead us in the classroom, who through hard work and talent create an atmosphere of excellence. These students make teaching a pleasure and leave me with the firm conviction that the future of the legal profession is in good hands.”

Cali AwardsA handful of students won three or more awards, including: Mary Klein, Russell Knowles and Ashley Warwar, with three each; Kaila McClellan with four; Carly Sherman and LeighAnn Thomas, with five each; Ann Charles Watts and Jonathan Zalewski with six each; and Elizabeth Watson with seven awards.

Many award-winners brought parents, spouses and children to the ceremony. “The success enjoyed by our CALI winners is in no small part the fruit of the love and support provided by their loved ones,” Shaw said.

A luncheon reception honoring the award-winners took place in the Atrium after the ceremony.
