According to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle (via TortsProf) the award “recognizes law professors who are committed to the advancement of justice, scholarship and the legal profession in the fields of tort and insurance law.” Prior recipients of the award included Judge Richard A. Posner, and the late Charles Alan Wright.
According to the article:
“Twerski, an authority in the areas of product liability and tort law, has contributed to the fields through his service as both a scholar and a teacher. He has published dozens of law review articles as well as books on torts and product liability law. He was named the R. Ammi Cutter Reporter for his outstanding work as co-reporter for the American Law Institute’s Restatement of the Law (Third) Torts: Products Liability, published in 1998. His most recent articles were published in the Yale Law Journal, Cornell Law Review and the Georgetown Law Journal. He is co-author of the leading textbook, Products Liability: Problems and Process as well as Torts, Cases and Materials, with Cornell Law School professor James A. Henderson Jr.”
