MISSOURI ST. LOUIS Law Students Honor Judge Edwards

St. Louis Circuit Judge Jimmy Edwards won the Theodore McMillian Award Thursday night at a reception given by the Black Law Students Association of St. Louis University Law School.

Edwards got the award for making an exceptional contribution to the community.
