Law librarian selected as 'unsung legal hero'

A WMU-Cooley Law School law librarian has been selected as an “Unsung Legal Hero” by Michigan Lawyers Weekly. Eric Kennedy is among 26 honorees in the second class of “Unsung Legal Heroes.”

“Eric Kennedy is the epitome of a reference librarian. His number one goal is to fulfill the duties as a reference librarian to students, faculty and staff of the law school. Eric does this with the most pleasant demeanor and the highest level of professionalism,” said Duane Strojny, WMU-Cooley associate dean for library and instructional support. “Eric’s humility may be the most important reason why Eric is an Unsung Hero. He constantly goes above and beyond in helping others without ever expecting anything in return.”

Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s Unsung Legal Heroes is a program that honors law firm employees who have consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty, often behind the scenes. The award is reserved for the state’s most talented and dedicated legal support professionals. The recognition covers several areas in law, including law librarians, paralegals, legal secretaries, firm administrators, information technology, legal education and legal marketing.

Kennedy and the other honorees will be profiled in a special supplement in the July 30 issue of Michigan Lawyers Weekly.
