Dean Epps Named Among 25 Most Influential People In Legal Education

Most Influential PhotoNational Jurist Magazine has named Dean JoAnne Epps among the 25 most influential people in legal education in 2013, citing her "vision for the law school that includes not just curricular innovation and increased experiential opportunity, but an emphasis on institutional agility and responsiveness."  The magazine noted Epps' role in moving legal education away from a one-size-fits-all model.

Although it is her first time on this list, it is not the first time Epps' impeccable reputation and considerable influence have garnered national and regional attention. She is a three time honoree as one of the nation's top 100 black lawyers, compiled annually by Lawyers of Color Magazine, and in 2012 was named a "Distinguished Daughter of Pennsylvania." She is the 2009 recipient of the Sandra Day O'Connor Award, conferred annually by the Philadelphia Bar Association "on a woman attorney who has demonstrated superior legal talent, achieved significant legal accomplishments and has furthered the advancement of women in both the profession and the community," and was also selected by the PBA to deliver the Higginbotham Lecture for that year.
