This Award shall be given annually to a second or third year law student who has shown academic excellence in at least one of the following areas: international law, conflict of law, comparative law, or international transactions (or a similar legal course).
This Award will honor the memory of Fritz Juenger. Fritz joined the faculty of the UC Davis School of Law in 1975 teaching conflict of laws, comparative law, international transactions, and torts. He published and lectured widely both in the United States and abroad. Fluent in four languages, Fritz was the author of four books and numerous articles published in American and foreign journals. While teaching and writing were his passions, Fritz taught as a visiting professor at universities in Australia, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain and Uruguay. He received numerous awards and honors during his tenure at the law school, including the Distinguished Teaching Award in 1985. Fritz worked at the Max Planck Institute, was a Fulbright senior researcher, and a legal adviser to foreign countries and a member of many international legal societies and associations.
