Chaplain Thomas A. Judge was recently the subject of a Chicago Daily Law Bulletin feature entitled, "Chaplain connects with students." With anecdotes and insight from Associate Dean and Director of DePaul Law Admission Michael Burns, among other colleagues and students, the piece offers a uniquely personal look at the multifacted Chaplain.
Drawn to the legal profession for its noble ideals and abundance of national heroes, Judge, an Iowa-native, attended the University of Iowa College of Law before ultimately pursuing divinity school at the University of Chicago. While his public service inclinations led him through a variety of career incarnations, including a year assisting low-income residents in the Appalachia region, he settled with the DePaul University Ministries in 2004. A year later, he became chaplain of the College of Law, where his personable nature and professional experience make him a natural mentor to DePaul Law students and a friend to colleagues.
As Judge says, "If you have meaning in life, you have a lot. It's very meaningful and very enjoyable to work with the law school community."
