Ringhand receives prestigious Fulbright award


Associate Dean for Academic Affairs & Hosch Professor Lori A. Ringhand received a Fulbright Distinguished Chair Award to spend the spring 2019 semester as a visiting professor at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.

The Fulbright Scholars Program supports U.S. scholars and students working and studying abroad, and strives to promote international understanding and cooperation across communities and academic disciplines. The Fulbright Distinguished Chair Awards are considered the most prestigious appointments in the Fulbright Scholar Program and are awarded to eminent scholars who have a significant publication and teaching record.

Additionally, Ringhand has been selected from among UK Fulbright award recipients to present a 2019 Fulbright Gresham College Lecture. Gresham College is one of London’s most prestigious institutions of higher learning.

Ringhand is the eighth School of Law faculty member to be awarded a Fulbright grant. She follows Dean Peter B. “Bo” Rutledge and former Dean Rusk Center Associate Director María Eugenia Giménez (LL.M.’89) and former professors Edward J. Larson, Thomas J. Schoenbaum (two-time recipient) and Maxine S. Thomas in addition to the late Milner S. Ball (J.D.’71) and the late Gabriel M. Wilner.
