Professor Mohsen Manesh is 2013 Hollis Teaching Award recipient
The University of Oregon School of Law congratulates Assistant Professor Mohsen Manesh, who was chosen to receive the 2013 Orlando J. Hollis Teaching Award. The Hollis Award is the law school’s highest teaching honor.
The Law School Personnel Committee selected Manesh for this year’s award based on the criteria of peer teaching reviews, student teaching evaluations, committee members’ knowledge of the nominee’s teaching, and the number and substance of nominations. Manesh received nominations from students in all three of his classes: Contracts, Business Associations, and Advanced Business Law.
Students noted that Professor Manesh "teaches with practical applications of his subject matter in mind" and "is genuinely interested in seeing his students learn and succeed outside of the classroom, as well."
Manesh graduated magna cum laude from Georgetown University where he was named Order of the Coif and earned his bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering summa cum laude from the University of Arkansas.
Manesh’s research, which focuses on the intersection of corporate, contract and LLC law, has been cited in the popular Friedenthal, Miller, Sexton and Hershkoff civil procedure case book and, more recently, by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in the 2011 case Litwin v. Blackstone Group LP.
Additionally, Manesh has authored articles in the Boston College Law Review, the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law and the Stanford Technology Law Review, among others.
Manesh will receive the Hollis Award at this year’s commencement exercises.
