The Robert Strauss Center is excited to announce that Professors Rebecca Ingber (Boston) and Shirin Sinnar (Stanford) are the winners of the 2017 Mike Lewis Prize for National Security Law Scholarship.

For their outstanding work advancing the study of national security law, both are awarded $500 thanks to generous donations to the Mike Lewis Prize Fund (please see the Mike Lewis Prize page here for more information on donating to the fund).

Professor Ingber’s article Co-Belligerency, published in the Yale Journal of International Law Vol. 42:67, probes the origins and evolution of modern co-belligerency theory. Professor Sinnar’s work, The Lost Story of Iqbal, published in the Georgetown Law Journal Vol. 105:379, explores the aftermath of post-9/11 U.S. immigrant detention policy in the context of Iqbal v. Ashcroft and Ziglar v. Abbasi.

The Mike Lewis Prize was established in 2017 by the Robert Strauss Center, Ohio Northern University’s Pettit College of Law (ONU), in consultation with the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) Section on National Security Law. The prize honors Professor Mike Lewis of ONU, a much-loved colleague and prolific scholar who passed away in 2015.
