Eyes on the Prize


Clinical Professor Paul Tremblay
A national leader in clinical education, author, and beloved professor at BC Law for thirty-eight years, Paul Tremblay in January was awarded the 2020 William Pincus Award by the Clinical Section of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS). As noted in the nominations: “Like the best of superheroes, Paul’s quiet, modest demeanor hides great powers. But those powers are quickly apparent to and have a powerful impact on students lucky enough to have him as a supervisor, colleagues who engage him in discussions of teaching, clients whose lives are improved by his advocacy, and lawyers, teachers, and judges who benefit from the analytical rigor and moral clarity of his writings. The consistent theme that runs through all of Paul’s work is devotion to ensuring that our legal system and those working within it fulfill their promise of justice for all.” Dean Vincent Rougeau added: “Paul represents the best of legal education, particularly clinical education, by moving seamlessly from high theory to on-the-ground application.”
