WILLIAMSBURG -- James P. Whyte, Jr. dean of the Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William and Mary, was given an award Saturday by Bucknell University for "meritorious achievement."
The award to Whyte, a member of the Bucknell class of 1943, was for his "practical vision" in legal education and his abilities as a labor-management arbitrator and specialist in constitutional and criminal law.
Whyte earned his law degree from the University of Colorado and has been a member of the W&M law school faculty for 16 years and dean since 1970.
