This year's recipient will be Professor David Epstein. Currently at the University of Richmond School of Law, Professor Epstein is a renowned scholar in bankruptcy law, among other areas, and has held numerous positions, including Dean of Emory Law and partner at King & Spalding in Atlanta. Professor Epstein will be introduced by Professor Steve Nickles of Wake Forest University School of Law.

David Epstein teaches bankruptcy and other courses at the University of Richmond Law School where he has been awarded the George E. Allen Chair, an endowed faculty position honoring a distinguished Richmond trial lawyer. Before joining the Richmond faculty, David had an uncommonly large number of other jobs including teaching at the University of North Carolina, practicing with King & Spalding and serving briefly as dean of the Emory Law School. David has co-authored student and practitioner texts and law review articles on bankruptcy, contracts, corporate law, and the UCC. Most lawyers listened to David's lectures on contracts as part of their preparation for the bar exam. He is an elected conferee of the National Bankruptcy Conference and an elected fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy.
