About Sherman J. Bellwood
Throughout his distinguished career, Judge Sherman J. Bellwood was committed to the legal profession and to legal education. In one of his last and most generous contributions to legal education, Judge Bellwood endowed the Sherman J. Bellwood Lectures at the College of Law. According to the terms of his will, Judge Bellwood’s purpose in establishing this endowment was “to enable the College of Law to invite and present persons learned in the law to lecture on legal subjects from time to time.”
The Sherman J. Bellwood Lectures bring prominent and highly regarded local, regional, and national leaders to the state of Idaho and the University of Idaho campus. Past speakers include senators, Supreme Court justices, and a former United State Attorney General. Now split between its two beautiful locations, the Bellwood Lecture ties Moscow and Boise together and provides the current student body an experience unique to Idaho Law. This endowment is the largest endowed lectureship at the University of Idaho.
