Erika Danielle Robinson, a third-year law student and native of Memphis, Tennessee, was recently recognized with the Clinical Program Professionalism Award from the University of South Carolina School of Law.

The award is presented annually by the law school’s Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough Center on Professionalism to the student who demonstrates the highest commitment to the standards of professionalism of the South Carolina Bar through representation of clients in a Law School clinical course.

“Receiving the Clinical Professionalism Award is a high honor because it signals that I have the skills, conscientiousness, and compassion to work with real clients assisting them with real problems,” said Robinson.  “The clinic experience reinforced that the reason I came to law school, to help others, is the most important enterprise a lawyer can undertake. To be acknowledged for doing that well is tremendous honor.”

Graduating in May, Robinson will become as associate at the law firm of Gregory, Doyle, Calhoun & Rogers in Marietta, Georgia, this August.

The presentation was made on Tuesday, April 9 during the School of Law’s annual Awards Day Ceremony, which seeks to honor students and faculty members for their outstanding achievements during the academic year.
