Many UC College of Law alumni have received awards from the University of Cincinnati.
This award is given to an alumnus of the University of Cincinnati solely on the basis of notable achievement in his or her field. The Taft Medal differs from the Alumni Distinguished Service Award in that it is not restricted to service to the university. The award is in honor and memory of William Howard Taft, 27th president and 10th Chief Justice of the United States, as well as a Dean and 1880 graduate of the UC law school.
This award is given to a UC graduate, 35 years of age or younger, on the basis of significant professional achievement in his or her field of endeavor, and continued service and involvement with the university and community. This award is in honor and memory of Jeffrey Hurwitz, BBA ’72, MBA ’73, former president of the UC Alumni Association.
Dedicated alumni who, through their service, make an outstanding contribution to their university are usually over-modest, always unpaid, and unthinking of reward. Nonetheless, recognition is important, for an action that begins by aiding the advancement of a university ends in the improvements of the social structure in which we live. The UC Alumni Association issues the Alumni Distinguished Service Awards to provide that recognition for those who have faithfully rendered outstanding service to the University of Cincinnati.
This award honors a significant contribution to the mission and the stature of the University as a result of an individual's efforts in their fields of endeavor.
The Honorary Degree provides appropriate recognition by the University for attainment of extraordinary distinction, and serves to exemplify the highest purposes and ideals of the University in its recipients. The Honorary Degree represents the highest award given by the University of Cincinnati.
