The award recognizes Quigley’s distinguished career as a public interest and human rights lawyer, an academic and an author. His work has been devoted to social justice issues, including public housing, the right to a job and a living wage, voting rights and education reform. He served as director of the Law Clinic and the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center at Loyola for more than 30 years. 

Quigley has also litigated numerous cases with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc., the Advancement Project and the ACLU of Louisiana and has served as an advisor on human and civil rights to Human Rights Watch USA and Amnesty International USA. He has been an active lawyer with School of the Americas Watch and the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti. 

In addition, Quigley has authored several books, including “Ending Poverty As We Know It: Guaranteeing A Right to A Job At A Living Wage” (2003) and “Storms Still Raging: Katrina, New Orleans and Social Justice” (2008). He has been recognized for his service through numerous scholarly awards.

“Bill’s service and generosity to the College of Law, the university and the Loyola community reflects the Jesuit values and ideal of service we try to develop in our students,” said Loyola University New Orleans President Xavier Cole. “He leads by example, truly living with and for others.”
