John Feerick was mentioned in the New York Law Journal about his upcoming receipt of the 2017 ABA Medal, the highest honor awarded by the American Bar Association, which will be presented to him at the ABA Annual Meeting on August 12 in New York.
The American Bar Association has convened in New York City for the first time in ten years. The ABA Annual Meeting, which began Wednesday, will primarily be conducted at the midtown Hilton hotel.
But President Linda Klein said she hopes that the attendees will have ample opportunity to “get out of the hotel.”
This year, the Bar Association’s highest honor, the ABA medal, will be awarded to Fordham University School of Law professor John D. Feerick on Saturday. Feerick, who helped draft the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1964, has also authored a Pulitzer Prize nominated book.
“He is a wonderful person,” said Klein. “And he can do a lot more in a year than people do in their lifetime.”
