The Paul M. Bator Award was established in 1989 in memory of Professor Paul M. Bator, a renowned scholar and teacher of federal courts and constitutional law at Harvard and the University of Chicago and Principal Deputy Solicitor General in the Reagan Administration. The award is given annually to a law professor under 40 who has demonstrated excellence in legal scholarship, a commitment to teaching, a concern for students, and who has made a significant public impact. This award is presented during the Federalist Society's Annual Student Symposium. On February 21, 2015, the Paul M. Bator Award was bestowed upon Prof. Joshua Kleinfeld, who has been teaching criminal law, international law, and legal theory at Northwestern University School of Law since 2011. Professor Kleinfeld was selected for the award on account of his scholarship, which is already making a mark on criminal law theory, his teaching, which according to Northwestern students who nominated him communicates an infectious passion for his subject, and the public impact he is having through his efforts to promote the rule of law across the globe.
