Clinical Professor and Crime Victim Litigation Clinic (CVLC) Director Meg Garvin was presented with the 2021 Hardy Myers Victim Advocacy Award by the Oregon Crime Victims Law Center.
  • Professor Meg Garvin

The award is named in memory of Hardy Myers, who served as Oregon’s attorney general from 1997 to 2009. “Hardy Myers was an amazing statesman, and a visionary when it came to victims’ role in criminal justice,” Garvin said. “I had the privilege of observing his skills most acutely while working on Oregon victims’ rights provisions. Observing him taught me about the power of community: how the community can build better law and how good laws help the community. To be honored with an award named after him is deeply meaningful. On top of that, to receive it from the Oregon Crime Victim Law Center, an organization whose lawyers and advocates work every day to protect victims’ rights, is humbling.”

Garvin has worked in crime victim rights since 2003 and is recognized as a leading expert on the issue. Aside from her role with CVLC, she is also the executive director for the National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCVLI) and serves on Oregon’s Chief Justice’s Criminal Justice Advisory Committee. In November 2020, she received the Frank Carrington Crime Victim Attorney Award from the ABA Criminal Justice Section for her work.
