Bruce Jacob, dean emeritus and professor of law at Stetson University College of Law, was presented with NACDL’s Champion of Indigent Defense Award at the association’s Annual Meeting in San Francisco, Calif., in late July. The Champion of Indigent Defense Award recognizes an individual for exceptional efforts in making positive changes to a local, county, state, or national indigent defense system. Over 50 years ago, Prof. Jacob began his career by arguing for the state of Florida in the historic case of Gideon v. Wainwright, but in the years since he has dedicated himself to becoming one of the nation’s strongest voices advocating for the right to effective indigent defense counsel.
