Willamette Dean Wins Prestigious Prize

Symeon C. Symeonides, dean of the School of Law At Willamette University, has been awarded the first Friedrich K. Juenger Prize in Private International Law for his article "Choice of Law in the American Courts in 2000: As the Century Turns" published in the American Journal of Comparative Law.

The prize was established in 2001 by the American Society of Comparative Law in honor of its late former president Juenger, a long-time professor of the University of California and one of the top private international law scholars in the world. Symeonides is the first recipient of this prize.

Symeonides donated the $1,500 prize to the Fund for Faculty Excellence at the College of Law.
