Noel Allen '69 recognized for service
Elon trustee is recognized by a section of the North Carolina Bar Association for service to the legal community.
The Antitrust and Trade Regulation Section of the North Carolina Bar Association recognized Noel L. Allen '69 of Raleigh as the third recipient of its Distinguished Service Award.
“Noel epitomizes the criteria upon which this award is premised,” law partner Jack Nichols said in a news release. “He has spent his entire career promoting the highest ethical standards, developing antitrust scholarship, and advancing the interests of the Antitrust & Complex Business Disputes Section.”
Allen has been a member of Elon’s board of trustees since 1985 and served as the board’s chair from 2001 to 2003. He chaired the three strategic planning committees that for two decades guided Elon’s unprecedented growth, and he chaired the 1998 presidential search committee that brought President Lambert to the university.
He also played a pivotal role in establishing the Elon University School of Law and is a member of the law school’s advisory board. His innovative ideas on legal training helped inspire the law school’s mission to engage students and prepare lawyers who are leaders in their profession and their communities.
