Freer Receives University Scholar/Teacher Award

Richard D. Freer

Richard D. Freer, Robert Howell Hall Professor Law, received the University Scholar/Teacher Award at the Emory University Commencement Ceremony, May 12, 2008. The Scholar/Teacher Award, given on behalf of the United Methodist Church Board of Higher Education and Ministry, is presented to one Emory University professor each year who has excelled as a classroom teacher, shown unusual concern for students and made significant contributions to the scholarly life of the University. Only one other law professor has received this award – the late Harold J. Berman in 1992.

In addition to the Scholar/Teacher Award, Professor Freer was honored by the Class of 2008 as this year’s Most Outstanding Professor, an award he has received seven times in his 25-year teaching career at Emory. He also was named Professor of the Year for 2007-08 by the Emory Black Law Students Association.
