Judge Bell to Receive Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree

During the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s commencement ceremony on May 17, Robert Mack Bell, Chief Judge of the Maryland Court of Appeals, will receive an Honorary Doctor of Laws.

Bell's nomination for the honor by Dean Phoebe Haddon comes after 38 years of influential work on the bench, a lifelong commitment to civil rights, and a steadfast dedication to mentoring future lawyers.

“Judge Bell has made exceptional contributions to the development of law in Maryland, has acquired national eminence as a leader of the judiciary, and has a distinguished record of public service,” said Haddon. “He has been a wonderful friend to the law school, and a role model to generations of young lawyers.”

Bell will receive his degree at the University-wide commencement ceremony at 1st Mariner Arena at 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
