Kiwanis Club of Macon: Club Info

This week's Guest Speaker was Prof. Sarah Gerwig-Moore, Co-Chairperson of the College Hill Corridor Committee in Macon.
Sarah is a Professor of Law at Mercer Law School where she specializes in Criminal Defense Law. A Macon native and a graduate of the public school system, she received her undergraduate degree from Mercer University where she majored in English and Music. She later attended Emory Law School in Atlanta, receiving her J. D. in Law and Religion. Following law school, she worked in Atlanta in the Public Defender's Office. Since her return to Macon in 2006, she has been with Mercer University. Sarah serves on Macon's Planning and Zoning Commission as well as her work with the College Hill Corridor. In her discussion before the club, she noted that the purpose of the Collge Hill Corridor is to both better connect Mercer University students to Macon as well as improving the neighborhoods in the Corridor's area. The Commission is in its infancy and is mainly oriented on planning and idea gathering, seeking to gain support among the residents of the Collge Hill Corridor, which generally runs from Mercer University down Collge Street and then to the Law School, with branches off streets throughout the route. The Commission has put on several events throughout the year, to include "Screens in the Park" which was the showing of movies on an outdoor screen in Tatnall Square Park, as well as "Second Sunday" which brought a well known gospel singer to perform before a crowd in Washington Park. Food was catered by Luigis, and the event attracted over 150 people even on a very hot Sunday. If you didn't go, you missed the mimosas! She urged all of us to support the College Hill Corridor in its efforts to better our community.

Language and the Law An Interview With Professor Sarah Gerwig-Moore - WD Communications

Language and the Law An Interview With Professor Sarah Gerwig-Moore
Language and the Law An Interview With Professor Sarah Gerwig-Moore Facebook Now, as a professor at Mercer University's acclaimed law school, Professor Gerwig-Moore teaches in the Law and Public Service Program. In that role, she directs a unique law clinic where students work on research and writing projects that benefit real clients. Mercer has been ranked number one in the country by U.S. News and World Report for its legal writing program. To align itself with Mercer's reputation, the Legal Writing Institute recently chose to move its headquarters to Mercer. To maintain this competitive edge, Mercer law students take at least four classes related to legal research and writing (most law schools require only one or two courses). Upperclassmen have the opportunity to further hone their skills in small advanced-writing groups or in Professor Gerwig-Moore's clinic. Professor Gerwig-Moore believes that clear writing is the most important skill a lawyer can possess. Her efforts to teach these skills to others have not been overlooked. Recently she was chosen one of five young people who are making a difference in the community (Macon Magazine, September 2008). In addition, she has been successful in nearly all of her appellate cases. In the midst of handling several requests from students on a Monday afternoon, Professor Gerwig-Moore was willing to talk with WD Communications in a telephone interview.

Attorney Sarah Gerwig-Moore, the obit's author, said, "I wrote it while I was crying as a way to process my grief."
It was, she added, the least she could do to for a man who was not just a client, but someone who'd long been a friend. "That's what we do for people we love. We share remembrances of them," Gerwig-Moore said. "I think people just thought I was just some liberal tilting at a windmill, and I am. But this is the most important work I've ever done." Gerwig-Moore had never seen an obituary for an executed killer. While she and Bishop discussed at length the plans for his funeral arrangements, he did not know she would pen an obituary for him. "He did give me permission to tell his story in ways that would be helpful," Gerwig-Moore said, "especially to kids who were in trouble." When one of Bishop's lawyers moved to Arizona four years ago, Gerwig-Moore, a professor at Mercer University's Walter F. George School of Law, joined Bishop's legal team and took up the fight to save his life. "It was kind of like camping," Bishop once told Gerwig-Moore. "They really did go wander around and see what was left out at the trash," Gerwig-Moore said. "But he didn't like to talk about the bad things that had happened to him, because he didn't ever want to be seen as whining about it." Bishop once told Gerwig-Moore, "I'd give anything to push a lawn mower again." "'Anne Frank' blowed my mind," Bishop once told some of Gerwig-Moore's law students who'd gone to visit. "He wanted to be prepared," Gerwig-Moore said. "It was one of the best days of his life," Gerwig-Moore said, "because 30 years later he could still remember what the bread tasted like and the fresh honey."

Sarah Gerwig-Moore, 37
Associate Professor Mercer University School of Law Drawing on her own musical background, Sarah Gerwig-Moore helped produce concerts in Macon parks to raise money to jumpstart the massive rehabilitation of the College Hill Corridor, an area around Mercer University where she is a law professor. As founding co-chair of the College Hill Corridor Project, she and her band of fellow Mercer Law School colleagues played many of the concerts. Today, College Hill is a booming area with an ongoing master plan administered by full-time staff, and a variety of public and private funding sources. Gerwig-Moore also uses her legal expertise to instill in her students the importance of giving back. Through her Habeas Project, she supervises students who represent people with no attorney - including in three capital cases - as they appear before the Georgia Supreme Court. "My parents are public servants, and they instilled some important lessons in me that we've been given a lot of opportunities," she says.
