W. Kip Viscusi Named to Inaugural Cohort of Southern Economic Association’s Distinguished Fellows

The Southern Economic Association (SEA) presented and honored W. Kip Viscusi as part of its inaugural cohort of Distinguished Fellows on November 19, 2023 during its 93rd Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA.

The inaugural cohort consists of all living past Presidents of the Association, who are at least two years removed from office.

The SEA Board unanimously approved a resolution creating a Distinguished Fellows Program at its 92nd Annual Meeting. Distinguished Fellows have a substantial record of exceptional scholarly achievement and long-term involvement and service to the Association. Following this initial cohort, no more than two Distinguished Fellows will be recognized in any one year.

Kip Viscusi is Vanderbilt’s first University Distinguished Professor, with tenured appointments in the Department of Economics, the Owen Graduate School of Management and the Law School. He is the third most frequently cited U.S. law professor according to Brian Leiter’s Law School Reports (Google Scholar h-index).
