Tulane Law Professor Keith Werhan has been selected to receive a President’s Award for Excellence in Professional and Graduate Teaching at the university’s Unified Commencement on May 16.

Tulane Law Professor Keith Werhan, a constitutional law specialist who’s long been a student favorite in the classroom, has been chosen to receive a President’s Award for Excellence in Professional and Graduate Teaching at the university’s Unified Commencement on May 16.

Werhan, who holds the Ashton Phelps Chair of Constitutional Law, won the Felix Frankfurter Distinguished Teaching Award, which is voted on by the graduating law school class, in 1995, 2006 and 2012.

He’s the fifth law professor to receive the President’s Award, which was established in 2000 to recognize faculty members who “have a sustained and compelling record of excellence in teaching and learning and an ongoing commitment to educational excellence.” 

Awardees receive a one-time $5,000 cash award and a medallion designed by Professor Emeritus Franklin Adams.

Previous Tulane Law winners were Gabe Feldman (2013), Martin Davies (2012), Tania Tetlow (2009) and Oliver Houck (2002).

Werhan joined the Tulane Law faculty in 1989 and served as vice dean in 1995-98. He teaches about constitutional structure and the First Amendment, administrative law and federal courts, among other topics. He is frequently sought after for his expertise on thorny constitutional issues, such as immigration restrictions, the Affordable Care Act and disputes involving the speech and religion clauses.
