General Counsel Steven S. Locke earns recognition from Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly
Brandeis General Counsel Steven S. Locke was recently recognized by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly as one of 23 “In-house Leaders,” attorneys who provide outstanding leadership within their organizations.
Locke began his tenure at Brandeis 11 years ago, after teaching at Suffolk University Law School and serving as general counsel at the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination. At MCAD, he argued two cases before the state’s Supreme Judicial Court.
At Brandeis, Locke handles issues as diverse as intellectual property and employment law; recently, he helped design and implement the university’s new restorative justice process. Restorative justice is an alternative method of resolving disputes that brings together not only those directly involved in a conflict, but other community members affected as well, to reach a collaborative resolution.
Locke is also a member of the Waltham Freedom Team, which provides assistance on civil rights issues, and serves as a council member to the Boston Bar Association’s college and university law section. He has also served on the MCAD Advisory Board and the Melrose Human Rights Commission.
