ABA medal awarded to Professor John D Feerick

By August 14, 2017 October 17th, 2017 Genealogy Event

At the annual meeting of the American Bar Association held on August 12, 2017 in New York City, the ABA’s highest honour, the ABA medal, was awarded to Professor John D Feerick. John served as Dean of the Fordham Law School from 1982 until 2002 and still serves as Counsel to the Feerick Center for Social Justice.
In the 1960s he helped draft the 25th Amendment to the US constitution. This amendment concerns the establishment of a succession process should the President of the United States become incapacitated or deemed incapable of fulfilling his duties.

At the time he was helping to draft the 25th Amendment some 50 years ago, John was a young lawyer working at Skadden Arps in New York with a growing family.

Before leaving to take up the post of Dean in his alma mater, John had established a career in labour law, dispute resolution and in monitoring ethics in the legal profession and in public life.

Ancestor Network would like offer our sincere congratulations to John.
