UW Law professor among 2022 Distinguished Teaching Award recipients

Twelve University of Wisconsin faculty members will receive their Distinguished Teaching Award tonight at the Pyle Center. Among the recipients is Asifa Quraishi-Landes, a law professor who will receive the chancellor’s distinguished teaching award.

Specializing in comparative Islamic and U.S. constitutional law, Quraishi-Landes holds a doctorate from Harvard Law School and a degree from Columbia Law School. Before teaching, she served as a law clerk in the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals and as a former president of the National Association of Muslim Lawyers.

Among her other qualifications, “She encourages students to be thoughtful about the law as not just a set of rules, but a human endeavor with all the complexity and contradictions of society itself.”

The nominations were submitted by individual faculty members, departments and student organizations for those whose teaching they believe is of such quality that it merits recognition and awards.
