Dean Gary L. Bledsoe of Texas Southern University, Thurgood Marshall School of Law has been named the winner of the 2019 Virgil C. Lott Medal. The medal is presented every two years by The University of Texas School of Law to recognize those who uphold the values of Virgil Lott, the school’s first African-American graduate. Dean Bledsoe was presented with the medal during a gala dinner on February 7.

Dean Bledsoe has not only made incredible contributions to the legal profession but has also worked tirelessly to advance civil rights by educating the next generations of world-class lawyers.
