Harry O. Lawson (d. 2007)
Professor Emeritus of Law
Passed away 2007
In 1971, responding to chief Justice Warren Burger’s call for a program to train court administrators, Professor Harry Lawson spearheaded a program at the University of Denver College of Law which trained professional court administers in its Master of Science in Judicial Administration MSJA program.
The unique training that DU Law graduates received in the MSJA program prompted private law firms to hire our graduates for management positions.
