Silas Allard will be recognized on Thursday, April 15, 2021, with Emory University School of Law’s Young Alumni Award. The Young Alumni Award recognizes the professional and personal achievement of an Emory Law alumna/us who graduated within the past fifteen years and has made notable leadership and service contributions to Emory Law and to the legal profession. Allard was awarded the Young Alumni Award in 2020, but the ceremony was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Allard is a 2011 graduate of CSLR’s joint degree program, receiving his Juris Doctor from Emory University School of Law and his Master of Theological Studies from Candler School of Theology. As an Emory Law student, Allard was editor-in-chief of the Emory International Law Review, and received the university’s highest student honor, the Marion Luther Brittain Award. After graduation, Allard clerked for Chief Judge Donald C. Pogue on the Court of International Trade before returning to CSLR as associate director and managing director from 2013-2019. Allard continues to work with CSLR as a senior fellow and managing editor of the Journal of Law and Religion. In 2019, Allard began doctoral studies in Emory’s Graduate Division of Religion, continuing his work on migration and belonging, with special attention to the role that law and religion play in forming inclusive and exclusive communities. His writing has appeared in the journals Refuge and Political Theology and in edited collections on vulnerability, global law, international law, and migration.

Congratulations Silas!
