The St. George Tucker Award, created in 1995, is given each year to a member of the Marshall-Wythe School of Law adjunct faculty for outstanding service.

St. George Tucker was the second professor of law at William and Mary and a pioneer in legal education. He drafted a formal description of the requirements for a law degree at the College, which included an exacting schedule of qualifying examinations in history, government and related pre-law subjects. Tucker's course material was published as the first American edition of Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England. For a generation, Tucker's volume was considered the leading authority on American law.
