An alumnus of Rice University, Yale L. Rosenberg graduated in 1964 from New York University Law School, where he was a Root-Tilden Scholar. Rosenberg joined the University of Houston Law Center in 1972 to pursue his true calling of teaching after a distinguished career in government. His inspired instruction in Civil Procedure, Federal Jurisdiction, Professional Responsibility, and Jewish Law at the UH Law Center earned him the UH Teaching Excellence Award in 2000. An award-winning scholar, Rosenberg has been called "America's prophet" for his analysis of the decline of federal habeas corpus. Rosenberg's successful academic career was matched only by his marriage to Irene Merker Rosenberg. Those who knew Yale and Irene marveled at the great love between them for more than 30 years as marriage partners, collaborators, and colleagues.

The Yale L. Rosenberg Memorial Fund was established to recognize and foster excellence at the UH Law Center. The
endowment is used to fund a student writing prize and to bring distinguished speakers to the Law Center.
