Professor Andy Winden

Oregon Law Assistant Professor Andy Winden was recently named as the 2024 Orlando John Hollis Outstanding Faculty Teaching Award recipient.

“I am grateful every day for the opportunity to learn and teach at Oregon Law, a community in which I feel truly at home,” Winden remarked. “Faculty, staff, and students genuinely care about one another and about creating a world where all can thrive. I am deeply moved to be recognized by my colleagues and students and to be entrusted with training the next generation of lawyers in the Pacific Northwest.

Established in 1990 by an endowment gift from Wallace and Ellen Kaapcke in honor of former Oregon Law Dean Orlando John Hollis, the award is given annually to an outstanding teacher at the School of Law who has demonstrated excellence in classroom instruction.

Tom Lininger, Orlando John and Marian H. Hollis Professor at Oregon Law, noted the selection committee received several nominations for Professor Winden. “Students say that he is a demanding teacher, but he is also clear, supportive, and caring,” Lininger said. “Andy devotes a great deal of time to class preparation and to helping students with their papers. He has been especially supportive of traditionally underrepresented students.”

Winden teaches transactional business law and pursues scholarship in corporate governance, securities regulation, and sustainability. He holds a BA from Stanford University, an MALD from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and a JD from Harvard Law School. Prior to joining Oregon Law, Winden was a fellow at Stanford’s Rock Center for Corporate Governance, a partner at Morrison & Foerster, an associate at Sullivan & Cromwell, and an honors attorney at the US Treasury.
