Professor Joel Friedman Selected to Receive Prestigious Award

March 09, 2007

Joel Wm. Friedman, Jack M. Gordon Professor of Procedural Law & Jurisdiction and Director of Tulane-ITESM PH.D Program, has been selected by the Federal Judicial Center to receive the prestigious Judge John Brown Award. The award recognizes those who have made outstanding contributions to the Center's mission of judicial education. 
Judge John R. Brown, who served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit from 1955 until his death in 1993, and as chief judge from 1967 until 1979, was a strong proponent of improved judicial administration and procedure. To recognize Judge Brown’s appreciation of the Federal Judicial Center and his commitment to research and education about and for the federal judiciary, the Board of the Judge John R. Brown Scholarship Foundation, led by Mrs. Vera Brown, established the Judge John R. Brown Judicial Scholarship and Education Award.
