The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law has named the 2022 Faculty Research Award winners. The awards highlight the scholarly achievement of University of Arizona Law faculty. This year’s winners are: 

Distinguished Legal Scholar Award: Andrew Keane Woods 
Distinguished Early Career Scholar Award: Shalev Roisman 
Distinguished Public Service Scholar Award: Susie Salmon 
Faculty Research Fellowship: Ellie Bublick 

University of Arizona Professor of Law, and last year’s Distinguished Early Career Scholar Albertina Antognini served as this year’s Faculty Research Awards Committee Chair.  

“The Committee was so impressed by the work our colleagues are doing and it was an honor and a pleasure for us to be able to recognize a few of them with these formal awards,” said Antognini. “Their areas of expertise range from considering the relationship between legal pedagogy and the practice of law, to the duties we owe strangers, to the law of presidential power, to the global regulation of the internet. In each of these topics our awardees are not only making original contributions to legal scholarship, but they are also having a considerable impact on policymaking and on-the-ground reform efforts.” 

Jane Bambauer, professor of law, Chris Griffin, director of Empirical & Policy Research, Shefali Milczarek-Desai, director of the Workers’ Rights Clinic and co-chair of the Bacon Immigration Law and Policy Program and Simone Sepe, Chester H. Smith professor of law and finance, joined Antognini in this year’s Faculty Research Awards Committee, tasked with reviewing applications from the University of Arizona Law community and recommending this year’s award winners. 

“All the applications submitted offered a compelling cross-section of the state of research at the College. Our faculty are experts who aren’t content with reaching just academic audiences. They are actively engaged as thought leaders with the toughest legal questions facing our national and global communities,” said Griffin.
