Michelle McKinley named Bernard B. Kliks Professor of Law
University of Oregon School of Law Dean Michael Moffitt has named Associate Professor Michelle McKinley the Bernard B. Kliks Professor of Law.
Each year, the school's faculty advisory committee on chairs meets with the dean to determine how the coming year's available professorships and fellowships should be filled. The committee wholeheartedly recommended Professor McKinley for the professorship based on the merit of her teaching, research, and commitment to Oregon Law.
"Michelle is an acclaimed scholar, an innovative teacher, an active member of important national professional societies, and a generous member of our law school and university community," Dean Moffitt said in his announcement to the law school community.
Professor McKinley has garnered national and international recognition for her work since joining the Oregon Law faculty in 2007. A former Dean's Distinguished Faculty Fellow, McKinley received the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) fellowship, July 2012-May 2013. The prestigious, and competitive, ACLS Fellowship is awarded to researchers in all disciplines of humanities and related social sciences. She also was awarded the 2011 Surrency Prize from the American Society for Legal History.
A graduate of Wellesley College, Harvard Law School, and Oxford University, McKinley has received honors and grants from the National Endowment for Humanities, the National Science Foundation, and the American Philosophical Society, among others. She is the founder and former director of the Amazonian Peoples' Resources Initiative; a community-based reproductive rights organization in Peru.
