Professor Michael Green will receive the 2018 Robert B. McKay Law Professor Award from the American Bar Association (ABA) Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section at a dinner on Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018,  during the section’s annual meeting in Chicago.

“The Robert B.

Professor Green is a nationally and internationally recognized torts teacher and scholar. He served as Co-Reporter for the Restatement (Third) of Torts: Liability for Physical and Emotional Harm, Green and his Co-Reporter President and Professor William C. Powers, Jr. of the University of Texas were jointly honored with the John G. Fleming Memorial Prize for Torts Scholarship in 2012. Green is a member of the European Group on Tort Law, which prepared and published the Principles of European Tort Law in 2005. He is a founding member and Executive Committee member of the World Tort Law Society, an organization of torts scholars from Europe, Asia and the Americas.

“No living scholar has had a comparable impact on tort law,” adds Executive Associate Dean of Academic Affairs Jonathan Cardi. ”Moreover, Mike’s ethic as a mentor and collaborator has touched the lives of so many academics. He is a remarkable person, and his career reflects as much.”
