We are pleased to announce that Professor Jennifer Chacón -- and one of the founding editors of the ImmigrationProf blog -- is the recipient of the 2009 UC Davis Distinguished Teaching Award. The award, which is supported by the generosity of Bill and Sally Rutter, honors "law teachers who give stellar performances in the classroom." Since joining the UC Davis law faculty in 2004, Professor Chacón has earned the reputation as a super teacher as well as scholar. She teaches Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, and Immigration Law and write extensively on these subjects.
Professor Chacón was selected for the honor by a committee including a faculty member, alumni member, and current student.
Professor Chacón will be honored at a dinner next week.
