Jane Grisé, Director of Academic Success and a Legal Writing Instructor at the University of Kentucky College of Law, has been selected as the recipient of the ABA’s Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs’ (CoLAP) 2016 Meritorious Service Award.

The award recognizes a law student, law school, staff or faculty member who implemented a significant initiative or made a contribution toward law student mental and physical wellness through prevention, education, intervention and treatment of substance abuse, addiction, and mental illness with the law student population.

Grisé was nominated for this most prestigious award by Yvette Hourigan, Director of the Kentucky Lawyer Assistance Program, and chosen for her leadership and implementation of the Dean’s Challenge Program at UK Law.

The Dean’s Challenge Program consists of a 5 week challenge to introduce students to exercise, nutrition, health issues, and yoga, meditation, and other programs.

Grisé will be honored at the ABA CoLAP 2016 National Conference for Lawyer Assistance Programs Annual Dinner on Thursday, October 6 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
