Dean Kevin Johnson, our immprof blog leader, has just been named by the AALS as its inaugural recipient of the Michael A. Olivas Award for Outstanding Leadership in Diversity and Mentoring in the Legal Academy.
The Olivas Award is presented by the AALS Sections on Civil Rights, Education Law, Immigration Law, Minority Groups, and Student Services. It is awarded annually to the faculty member who most vividly exemplifies Olivas’s devotion to mentoring junior and aspiring faculty from underrepresented communities and promoting diversity, inclusion, and equity in the legal academy.
There will be an in person ceremony at the 2023 AALS Annual Conference -- Thursday January 5 at 1PM.
Congratulations, Kevin! This honor is so richly deserved.
