Louisville Law mourns the loss of Jack Ballantine

The University of Louisville School of Law joins the local legal community in mourning the loss of Jack Ballantine.

A longtime friend of the School of Law, Ballantine received the Dean's Service Award in 2006. This honor is awarded to a non-alumnus who is a strong supporter of the law school's mission.

"The high regard in which Jack Ballantine was held by the local and state legal community reflected his civility, kindness, commitment to service, leadership, excellence in practice and his recognition of the importance of relationships," says Professor Laura Rothstein, who selected him for the award.

Ballantine, who retired from Stoll Keenon Ogden after a 60-year legal career, was known for his medical malpractice defense practice. Among many other community engagement endeavors, he was a frequent adjunct professor at Louisville Law.
