The AALS Torts & Compensation Systems Section has announced that Mike Green (Wake Forest) will receive the 2015 Prosser Award. From the announcement:
On behalf of the Torts and Compensation Systems Executive Committee, it gives me great pleasure to announce that the recipient of the 2015 William L. Prosser Award is Michael D. Green
of Wake Forest University School of Law. Through his work as Co-Reporter for the Restatement (Third) of Torts: Liability for Physical Harm, his own scholarship, his contributions to multiple casebooks, his exemplary teaching, and his generosity toward other scholars, Michael Green has made “outstanding contributions ... in scholarship, teaching and service” of the kind that the Prosser Award was designed to recognize. I hope you will join the Executive Committee in offering our congratulations.
The award will be presented at our section meeting at 4pm on January 4, 2015, during the AALS annual conference at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C. We hope to see many of you there.
Many thanks to all of you who took the time to submit such thoughtful nominations to our nominating committee. Many thanks, too, to that committee, consisting of James Henderson, Jane Stapleton, and Jennifer Wriggins. And finally, once again, many congratulations to Mike.
