The Law School | May 18, 2016
Nicole Stelle Garnett, John P. Murphy Foundation professor of law at Notre Dame Law School, was recently awarded the Reinhold Niebuhr Award by the University of Notre Dame.
“I’m deeply honored to receive the Reinhold Niebuhr award, especially because it recognizes the connection, which I aspire to achieve, between my scholarship and my commitment to making the world a better place, especially for the disadvantaged,” said Garnett.
The award is given annually to a faculty member or administrator whose body of academic work and life promote or exemplify an area of social justice in modern life. It is named for Karl Paul Reinhold Niebuhr, an American theologian, ethicist, public commentator on politics and public affairs, and professor at Union Theological Seminary.
