Mitra Sharafi wins teaching award

Mitra SharafiMitra Sharafi, Professor of Law at UW-Madison, received the Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award on April 6, 2021. The award is an honor given out since 1953 to recognize the university’s finest educators. Sharafi received her Ph.D. from Princeton in 2006.

“Sharafi links theory to practice and encourages students to think beyond the four walls of the classroom. While learning the traditional elements of contract formation, breach and remedy, she consistently reminds students that the ‘law on the books’ often differs from the ‘law on the ground.'”
