Norman Berger Honored for Outstanding Service to DePaul PDF Print E-mail

Norman B. Berger was honored for his Outstanding Service to DePaul University recently at the 2013 DePaul Law Alumni Awards Dinner.

The Dean of the DePaul College of Law, Gregory Mark, affectionately referred to Norman as his favorite “shark” as he presented him with the award for Outstanding Service. The Honor recognized Norman for investing significant time, talent and effort to support the mission of DePaul University and the College of Law and for living the DePaul mission in both his personal and professional life.

Norman not only provides legal services to DePaul, but is Past President and a current member of the Dean’s Council, an advisory board for the Dean at the College of Law. He has served on the Council for over a decade.

Norman also helped to establish the Class of 1981 Memorial Fund in Memory of classmate Marie Monahan, designating the funds to benefit and support the Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) established by DePaul Professor Leonard L. Cavise. Consistent with DePaul’s Vincentian Mission of Service to the Underserved, LRAP rewards those who devote themselves to positions in public service by repaying a portion of their law school loans.

The proceeds of the Awards Dinner, held at the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower Hotel and attended by over 200 people, benefitted the Center for Public Interest Law at DePaul, which oversees the LRAP program. This year marked the College of Law’s 19th anniversary of the Law Alumni Awards program.
