Sandy Levinson to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

Sandy Levinson will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Law and Courts Section of the American Political Science Association. A panel in his honor is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 3, 4:15 p.m, at the annual meeting. Gary Jacobsohn is scheduled to represent the department on the panel.

Sandy has been an invaluable member of our Public Law faculty. His generosity to students and colleagues is unsurpassed. He has served on many dissertations, taught courses populated by many of our graduate students, graded prelims, used graduate students as TA’s, served on search committees, hosted conferences that have brought in many of the nation’s most distinguished faculty in political science from across the fields–and the list goes on. Most notably, he has enhanced the visibility and the quality of public law at Texas immensely. The breadth, quality, and amount of his scholarship are breathtaking. Please join in congratulating Sandy on this signal honor.
