Nancy H. Rogers Prize in Dispute Resolution Scholarship

This prize was created in 1999 by an anonymous donor, with the stipulation that it be named in honor of Nancy H. Rogers, who, at that time, was the Joseph S. Platt-Porter Wright Morris & Arthur Professor of Law and director of our Program on Dispute Resolution.

Each year, the award recognizes two students who, in the judgment of a committee of faculty members who teach in the dispute resolution, wrote research papers on a dispute resolution topic that, in the donor's language, "reflect the analytical rigor and intellectual breadth associated with highly-regarded scholarly contributions."
