Sterling Professor of International Law Harold Hongju Koh has been awarded the 2013 William Green Award for Professional Excellence by the University of Richmond School of Law. Koh received the award on March 1, 2013, at the University’s thirty-first annual luncheon.
The award honors Judge William Green, one of the three distinguished members of the original law school faculty at Richmond College. It is the law school’s highest honor and recipients include those who embody Green’s vision to aspire towards extraordinary professional excellence. It has been previously awarded to Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, United States Supreme Court; Chief Justice Harry L. Carrico, Virginia Supreme Court; Attorney Oliver W. Hill, civil rights activist; Timothy M. Kaine, United States Senator, Commonwealth of Virginia, and many others.
Professor Koh is one of the country’s leading experts in public and private international law, national security law, and human rights. He began teaching at Yale Law School in 1985 and served as dean from 2004 until 2009, when he accepted a position as Legal Adviser to the U.S. Department of State. He returned to Yale Law School in January 2013, at which time he was named a Sterling Professor of International Law, among the highest honors bestowed on Yale faculty. A Marshall Scholar, Professor Koh graduated from Harvard, Oxford, and Harvard Law School and has received twelve honorary degrees and more than thirty awards for his human rights work.
