Wayne State BOG member, alumnus Eugene Driker to receive Champion of Justice Award


State Bar of Michigan members will gather at the Lansing Center on Wednesday, Sept. 18, to honor the best in the legal profession. Among this year’s “Champion of Justice Award” recipients is Wayne State University alum Eugene Driker, who has served on the University’s Board of Governors for 10 years, including Chair from 2007-08. Professor Robert Sedler, winner of last year’s John W. Reed Michigan Lawyer Legacy Award, commended Driker for his exemplary work as Chair of the Wayne State Law School Campaign for the 21st Century, which raised more than $15 million for the school and resulted in a major expansion of the building.
