The Society of American Law Teachers Board of Governors has selected University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law Professor Erika George as the recipient of the 2020 SALT Shanara Gilbert Human Rights Award.
The organization is honoring George for her longstanding contributions in human rights work in the classroom and community —both domestically and abroad. George’s work has advanced SALT’s mission and embodies the tenets of this award, the organization stated in a notification letter.
George will accept the award virtually at SALT’S 2021 Annual Celebration on January 8, 2021.
