April 28, 2015 —
Georgetown University Law Center is pleased to present Professor Jeffrey Shulman (L’05) with the annual Frank Flegal Excellence in Teaching Award.
The award recognizes Shulman’s many years of excellence in teaching, his dedication to students and colleagues and his generosity in mentoring students inside and outside of the classroom. Shulman, who teaches courses in constitutional law and legal research and writing, was described as "an exceptional educator and human being" in the award citation.
A member of the Law Center faculty for almost 10 years, Shulman began teaching in the Georgetown University Department of English in 1984. He graduated from the Law Center's evening section in 2005, and his dedication to the part-time program was also noted.
Shulman is the author of The Constitutional Parent: Rights, Responsibilities and the Enfranchisement of the Child (Yale University Press, 2014).
This award was established in memory of Frank Flegal, who taught at the Law Center from 1971 to 1992. Recipients are chosen based on nominations by faculty and students.
