Professor Leticia Saucedo has been honored with the William and Sally Rutter 2013 Distinguished Teaching Award, Dean Kevin R. Johnson has announced.  She will be presented with the award at the 2013 Distinguished Teaching Award and Scholarship Recognition Celebration on March 14 in the UC Davis Conference Center.

Professor Saucedo joined the UC Davis School of Law faculty in 2010 as a Professor of Law and Director of Clinical Education.  An expert in employment, labor, and immigration law, she came to King Hall from the William S.

The Distinguished Teaching Award, supported by the generosity of William and Sally Rutter, honors "law teachers who give stellar performances in the classroom." This year's nominees included Professors Afra Afsharipour, Ashutosh Bhagwat, Alan Brownstein, Christopher Elmendorf, Courtney Joslin, and Lisa Pruitt, as well as adjunct faculty members Daniel Boone, Jennifer Harder, and Jason Rabinowitz. Dean Johnson said that thanks were due to the selection committee, which included 2012 Distinguished Teaching Award winner Professor Evelyn Lewis, Chair-Elect of the Alumni Association Board of Directors Gage Dungy '03, and law student Christian Acevedo '13.
