Adam Gershowitz has been named the Student Bar Association’s 2010-11 “Professor of the Year,” the second time in his two years at the Law Center that student organizations have honored him with their top faculty award. After its annual poll of the student body, the SBA recognized him for his commitment to classroom excellence and his mastery of the law. In 2009-10, his first year at the Law Center, he was honored by the Order of the Barons.
“It is such a pleasure to teach these students,” Gershowitz said, “because they are so hardworking and enthusiastic. I’m honored by the students’ recognition, particularly given that the University of Houston Law Center has such an exceptional teaching faculty.”
Last year’s winner of the SBA award was Prof. David Dow. Prof. Douglas K. Moll was recently named winner of the Barons’ award for the fourth time.
Gershowitz teaches and writes in the area of criminal law and procedure. His recent scholarship has been published or is forthcoming in the Northwestern University Law Review, Iowa Law Review, University of Illinois Law Review, Vanderbilt Law Review, UCLA Law Review, U.C. Davis Law Review and other leading law journals.
The professor’s trophy cabinet must be nearly full as before he joined the Law Center faculty he taught at South Texas College of Law where he received the SBA All Faculty Teaching Award (2008), All Faculty Advising Award (2007), and Best New Professor Award (2006).
