JonathanWolf ‘11 J.D. is the recipient of the American Inns of Court 2021 Sandra Day O’Connor Award for Professional Service. This national award is given each year to an Inns of Court member who has been in practice for less than 10 years to recognize excellence in public interest or pro bono activities. “I have consistently seen Mr. Wolf throw himself into his many pro bono cases as a definitive exemplar of the term ‘zealous advocate,’” attorney Nicholas R. Delaney, Wolf’s mentor, said in his nomination letter. “Time and again, Mr. Wolf has vigorously and effectively represented vulnerable, local people facing a crisis, with no expectation of payment in return.” Wolf will be honored in April by the American Inns of Court at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. He is a member of the John E. Simonett Inn of Court based in St. Cloud, Minn. ALUMNUS RECEIVES AWARD FOR PROFESSIONAL SERVICE


Minneapolis law firm Bassford Remele made a $60,000 gift to St. Thomas Law to create a new scholarship aimed at promoting diversity in the legal profession. The scholarship will provide financial assistance to St. Thomas law students who are interested in civil litigation, have a strong academic record and are part of a diverse or underrepresented group within the legal field. As part of establishing the scholarship, Bassford Remele has chosen to honor one of its attorneys, Rebecca EggeMoos , on the law school’s newWomen’s Wall of Leadership. The display, located on the third floor of the building, showcases outstanding female lawyers. The Women’s Wall of Leadership was developed through a gift from law school Board of Governors member Thomas Dolphin, Sr., who wanted to honor female innovators, including his mother, entrepreneur and philanthropist Dorothy Pohlad Dolphin. The first recipient of a Bassford Remele scholarship is 1L Marina Cruz .
