If you have noticed a new directional sign as you enter the Judge Ben C. Green Law Library at CWRU, you may have been curious about the Law alum being honored with a large display in the Library's Davis Reading Room.  The display recognizes the historic contributions of Western Reserve University Law School, Class of 1922 graduate, Judge Perry B. Jackson.  In 1945, Judge Jackson became Ohio's first elected African-American judge serving a total of 44 years on the Cleveland Municipal Court and the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.
