News Posted on January 11, 2021

UC Davis Chancellor Gary S. May has selected Professor Brian Soucek as a Chancellor’s Fellow. Soucek will hold the title until July 2025 and receive a one-time award of $25,000 to be used in support of research, teaching, and service activities.

The Chancellor’s Fellows Program, supported in part by funds from the Davis Chancellor’s Club and the UC Davis Annual Fund, was established in 2000 to honor the achievements of outstanding faculty members early in their careers.

"It’s amazing to see the breadth and importance of the work this year’s Chancellor’s Fellows are doing across the university," Soucek said. "I’m just really honored to be included among them, and really thankful to my colleagues and Dean Johnson for supporting my work ever since I arrived at Davis."

Professor Soucek’s primary teaching and research interests are antidiscrimination law, civil procedure, constitutional law, and refugee/asylum law. He holds a J.D. from Yale Law School and a Ph.D from Columbia University. He has clerked for U.S. District Court Judge Mark R. Kravitz in Connecticut, and Judge Guido Calabresi of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
