Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Clinical Professor and Pro Bono Program Director Pamela Daiker-Middaugh ’89 has been selected as the 2014 Justice for All Volunteer of the Year Award recipient by the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association.
Daiker-Middaugh was honored for her dedication as a volunteer in CMBA’s pro bono and community programs, her leadership at the Bar, and for encouraging volunteer service among law students and graduates.
As director of the Cleveland-Marshall Pro Bono Program, Daiker-Middaugh oversees more than 11,000 hours of pro bono service annually to those in need, giving students the unique opportunity to serve the community while learning the law. This academic year, over 200 Cleveland-Marshall students and recent graduates participated in a service project. One of several ongoing pro bono projects in which Cleveland-Marshall students participate is the CMBA’s 3Rs Program, where law students team-teach the United States Constitution in Cleveland high schools.
Daiker-Middaugh will accept her award at the CMBA’s sold-out annual meeting and luncheon on Friday, June 13. The association will also swear in several Cleveland-Marshall graduates among its leadership for 2014-15 ─ Joseph N. Gross ’91 as treasurer, and Ann M. Caresani ’94, Ashley M. Edwards ’04, Brian M. McDonough ’00 and Hon. Melody J. Stewart ’88 as trustees.
