Professor Michael Burger Wins National Award

Posted by David Logan on 11/25/2013 at 11:14 AM

I am pleased to announce that one of the young stars of the RWU Law faculty, Michael Burger, has received recognition for his excellent writing. Michael was recently awarded the Penny Pether Award for Law and Language Scholarship for his article "Environmental Law/Environmental Literature" in the leading journal Ecology Law Review. The award was presented at West Coast Rhetoric Scholarship Workshop at UNLV’s Boyd School of Law.

It should be no surprise that Michael would be recognized for his excellent writing: in addition to his exceptional academic performance at Columbia Law School, and his editorial position on the Columbia Journal of Environmental Law, Michael has a MFA from the Graduate Creative Writing program at NYU, and teaches Law and Literature and various Environmental Law topics at RWU.

Congratulations Michael!
