We are pleased to announce that two of the Washington College of Law’s four annual faculty scholarship awards for the 2013-14 school year went to clinicians. Additionally, this year’s university-wide scholarship award went to a clinician. We are proud of these achievements, which are particularly meaningful because on top of their scholarship, clinicians directly supervise a full complement of students in our in-house clinics. Each of our clinical colleagues is adept at balancing the difficult work of being a clinical teacher with their commitments to scholarship and service in the cause of justice.
Richard (Rick) Wilson won the Pauline Ruyle Moore Scholar Award for his article, Omar Khadr: Domestic and International Litigation Strategies for a Child in Armed Conflict Held at Guantanamo, SANTA CLARA JOURNAL OF INTERNATIONAL LAW V. 11, no. 1 (2012).
Susan Bennett won the Egon Guttman Casebook Award for Susan Bennett, Brenda Bratton Blom, Louise A. Howells & Deborah S. Ken, Community Economic Development Law: A Text for Engaged Learning (Carolina Academic Press 2012).
Finally, Jenny Roberts will receive the 2014 University Faculty Award for Outstanding Scholarship, Research, Creative Activity, and Other Professional Contributions. This important award “requires distinction as a scholar as documented through publications, invited lectures and papers, performances or shows, leadership in professional societies, work on editorial boards, membership in prestigious professional organizations, references, quotes or appearances in the media, or other kinds of selective positions of leadership.” Additionally, Prof. Roberts was just appointed Associate Dean for Scholarship, effective Fall 2014.
