The Honorable Randall T. Shepard, former Chief Justice, Indiana Supreme Court (ret.) serves as the 2015 Bernard J. Ward Jurist in Residence. He will visit Loyola from January 26 - 27, 2015 to offer a series of lectures to students, faculty, and alumni.  

This distinguished residency was established through a gift from Loyola Law alumnus the Honorable Adrian G. Duplantier in memory of his former classmate, Bernard J. Ward. Professor Ward served on the faculty at Loyola, Notre Dame, and the University of Texas. He also served for many years as the reporter for the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules for the Judicial Conference of the United States. The program serves to bring an esteemed jurist to the law school to speak to and interact with the Loyola Law community.

Judge Shepard became Chief Justice of the Indiana Supreme Court in 1987 at age 40, then the youngest chief justice in the United States. Shepard also practiced law, served as a trial judge, was Executive Assistant to the Mayor of Evansville, Indiana, and served as Special Assistant to the U.S. Under Secretary of Transportation in Washington, D.C. Like Professor Ward, Shepard was also appointed to serve on the U.S. Judicial Conference Advisory Committee of Civil Rules.

Shepard retired from the Supreme Court in March 2012. He presently serves as Executive in Residence at Indiana University’s Public Policy Institute and as a Senior Judge in the Indiana Court of Appeals.

The National Jurist recently named Shepard one of the Most Influential People in Legal Education.
