Call for Nominations – 2022 Buxbaum Prize for Teaching in Comparative Law
August 3, 2022
The Younger Comparativists Committee (YCC) of the American Society of Comparative Law (ASCL) invites nominations, including self-nominations, for the annual Richard M. Buxbaum Prize for Teaching in Comparative Law.
The YCC created the Buxbaum Prize in the summer of 2014 in honor of Professor Richard M. Buxbaum, the 2014 recipient of the ASCL Lifetime Achievement Award. Professor Buxbaum is the Jackson H. Ralston Professor of International Law (emeritus) at the University of California, Berkeley.
The Buxbaum Prize for Teaching in Comparative Law is awarded by the YCC in collaboration with the ASCL Prizes Committee in recognition of teaching excellence in any subject of comparative public or private law by an early stage scholar (who has been teaching Comparative Law for less than 10 years) in a tenure-track position at an ASCL Member Institution.
Nominations will be accepted by tenure-track or tenured professors currently teaching at an ASCL Member Institution. Self-nominations are accepted, but nominations or letters of support by colleagues who are experienced teachers will carry more weight. The Committee reserves the right not to make an award in any given year. Nominations should be emailed by 12 pm EST on September 15th, 2022, to YCC@ascl.org with the subject line “Submission for the Richard M. Buxbaum Prize”.
Nominations should include the name, institutional affiliation, contact information, field of scholarly interest in comparative law, any relevant course syllabi and a supporting statement attesting to the nominee’s teaching excellence. They may also include teaching evaluations.
