Law library receives workplace award

The UGA School of Law’s Alexander Campbell King Law Library was awarded the Briggs Award by Briggs and Associates, an employment agency specializing in custom career design and support for people with disabilities, earlier this month.The award recognizes employers who embody the Shakespearean philosophy “there’s place and means for every man alive” and who make efforts to create a workplace that reflects the entire community.

Briggs and Associates career specialists Jennifer Bradford, Audra Pursell and Jennifer Fobart, who provide career assistance for individuals with developmental disabilities, and regional director Mollee Atkinson nominated the law library for the honor due to its work with employee Janeanne Napoli.

Recipients are chosen based on the long-term commitment to the Briggs philosophy, the leadership to create jobs not traditionally available to people with developmental disabilities and the daily demonstration of the values inscribed on the award: believing in people, recognizing individual potential, instigating inclusive work staffs, generating supportive work environments, giving back to the community and serving as an example to other employers.
