Cooley Professor Dorean Marguerite Koenig is a recipient of a lifetime achievement award and has been inducted into the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame. Her achievements reflect her work in human rights law, women’s rights law, civil rights, civil liberties and education.

The Lansing area YWCA has awarded her their top award, the Diana, for outstanding service to the community.

She is a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation, elected by her peers. Membership is based upon outstanding achievements, dedication to the welfare of the community, and to the highest principles of the legal profession. Koenig is also a Fellow of the Michigan Bar Foundation, also elected by her peers.

The Lansing League of Women Voters President has honored Koenig for her work in organizing programs to register voters. (Prof. Koenig also presents League programs at Cooley.)

Koenig is past co-chairperson of the Death Penalty Committee of the Individual rights & Responsibilities Section (IRR) of the American Bar Association (ABA). She has organized, presented and chaired national and international programs against the death penalty, primarily at ABA Annual Meetings.

Internationally, Koenig assisted in developing the Siracusa Sicily drafts for the International Criminal Court. The Court was established by Treaty, called the Rome Treaty, where Koenig was a non-governmental organization (NGO) delegate.

One of her former students, Kelly Askin, was also an NGO delegate. Earlier, Koenig worked in Sicily helping to develop a Court for the prosecution of crimes committed in the Former Yugoslavia and, afterwards, a Court for prosecution of crimes committed in Rwanda.

Koenig was an NGO delegate to the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, China, presenting a paper at the NGO conference.

Professor Koenig is the recipient of a Fulbright research award to Finland where she was a visiting professor in the University of Helsinki’s criminal law department. She has given lectures, primarily at law schools, in Finland, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, Canada, Australia, Slovenia (Ljubljana) and the Netherlands. She was a visiting scholar at the Wellcome Institute in London where she studied the history of Eugenics.

Koenig was a national officer of the International Association of Penal Law & much of her international work has been done under its auspices.

Professor Koenig is co-editor, with Cooley graduate Kelly Askin, of a three-volume treatise: Women and International Human Rights Law that encompasses Chapters written by over 100 experts from around the globe.

Prior to coming to Cooley, Professor Koenig was a partner and founding member of Koenig, LeBost and Jobes, P.C., one of the first feminist law firms in Michigan. Asked to write the drafts for the first Michigan Standard Criminal Jury Instructions, she worked with the blue-ribbon committee and they formulated Michigan’s first set of standard instructions. Koenig was in charge of the Detroit Research Office of the Michigan Court of Appeals as her last job before coming to Cooley.

Professor Koenig is an award-winning teacher and prolific author whose criminal law textbook is used in some Cooley classes. She helped develop the 60 Plus Clinic at Cooley, and has served on the Board for a number of years.
