May 20, 2010–Kris Gardner was recently awarded the “Apple Gavel” Award by the North Carolina Bar Association’s Law Related Education Advisory Committee for his work in updating and organizing the LRE website.
As part of the web site upgrade, Gardner helped convert educational paper documents to an electronic format. He also organized them by category and posted them on the LRE website, http://lre.ncbar.org/. Students and teachers now have electronic access to materials about the government, the courts, and the law without having to check them out manually.
Gardner practices alcoholic beverage control law, local government law and litigation at Tharrington Smith, LLP in Raleigh.
