Peter M. Cicchino Public Service Awards
Peter M. Cicchino was a brilliant and creative American University Washington College of Law professor, scholar, and public interest lawyer. In January 2000, the AUWCL faculty voted unanimously (with Professor Cicchino abstaining) to create these public interest awards in his name. The Peter M. Cicchino Awards for Outstanding Advocacy in the Public Interest are given annually to three persons during our Founder’s Celebration. The Cicchino Awards recognize and honor those students and alumni whose devotion to, and creative service in, the public interest exemplify the highest ideals of the Washington College of Law.
