Hall-Hartman Outstanding Professor Award

Each year, several Vanderbilt Law professors are honored with Hall-Hartman Awards for outstanding teaching during the previous academic year. The awards recognize faculty whose teaching is deemed outstanding in each of the three first-year student sections and for large and small upper-level elective courses and are based on the results of a student poll conducted by the Vanderbilt Bar Association. The awards are named in honor of Professors Emeritus Donald J. Hall and Paul Hartman.
