The Robert Strauss Center and Ohio Northern University’s Pettit College of Law are excited to announce that Kristen Eichensehr, Assistant Professor at UCLA School of Law, is the winner of the 2018 Mike Lewis Prize for National Security Law Scholarship.

For her outstanding work advancing the study of national security law, Professor Eichensehr is awarded $1000, 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 and the nomination process).

Professor Eichensehr’s article, Courts, Congress, and the Conduct of Foreign Relations, published in The University of Chicago Law Review, explores U.S. courts' and Congress' recent direct interactions with foreign executive branches.

The Mike Lewis Prize was established in 2017 by the Robert Strauss Center and 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.
