Dr. Artika Tyner has been chosen as the recipient of one of Phi Alpha Delta’s (P.A.D.) most prestigious awards, the John J. McAulay Legal Educator Award (#padcon2022). Phi Alpha Delta is the world’s preeminent law fraternity, with a legacy that began on Nov. 8, 1902, to support the ideals of diversity, equity, and inclusion under the law.
“I’m honored to be presented with one of Phi Alpha Delta’s greatest honors, the 2022 John J. McAulay Legal Educator Award,” said Tyner.
The award is presented from time to time to a P.A.D. member for their contribution to legal education based upon a lifetime of dedication to the principles and core values of compassion, courage, diversity, innovation, integrity, professionalism, and service. McAulay was a professor of law at Loyola University School of Law in New Orleans, Louisiana for more than 40 years and the District XVI Justice from 1974 to 1979.
“For the past 16 years, I have educated and inspired my students as they build new inroads to justice and freedom,” said Tyner. “My students and mentees are planting seeds of social change. I am blessed that we are on this leadership journey together.”
Tyner is passionate about the law, an advocate for justice, and law professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law. She’s the founder of the non-profit organization Planting People Growing Justice™ Leadership Institute (https://www.ppgjli.org/) (PGJLI). Tyner has been recognized for her efforts in multiple fields that includes the Anthem Award, Bush Foundation Fellowship, Loft/McKnight Writing Fellowship, and Social Justice Leader Award.
Her children’s books have won international acclaim, including the coveted Purple Dragonfly Book Award. Tyner also developed a model for creating a Black Ecosystem after a decade of research.
Receiving Phi Alpha Delta’s John J. McAulay Legal Educator Award is a testament to Tyner’s lifetime of dedication to the law and legal education. She’s a prime example of P.A.D.’s core values, embodying its ideals and principles.
