Snyder, Prosser and Meuer named Teachers of the Year by Wisconsin Law Alumni Association

Each spring, the Wisconsin Law Alumni Association celebrates excellence in teaching at University of Wisconsin Law School through its Teacher of the Year awards.

Here are the three honorees for outstanding classroom, clinical and adjunct instruction in 2015, who were recognized at the Law School's Board of Visitors meeting in April:

Brad Snyder, Classroom Teacher of the Year. Snyder teaches civil procedure, constitutional law, constitutional history and sports law. He is the author of the critically acclaimed book, “A Well-Paid Slave: Curt Flood’s Fight for Free Agency in Professional Sports.” His current book project, a pre-New Deal history of American liberalism, has been accepted for publication by Oxford University Press.

Mary Prosser, Clinical Teacher of the Year. A 1977 graduate of UW Law School, Prosser has more than 20 years of criminal law and post-conviction litigation experience. In 2003, she joined the Frank J. Remington Center, where she currently serves as an associate clinical professor in the Legal Assistance to Institutionalized Persons Project, which advocates for prisoner rights.

Teresa Meuer, Adjunct Teacher of the Year.
A 1983 graduate of UW Law, Meuer returned to the Law School to teach a course in domestic violence. She is a staff attorney for the Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence, a position she has held since its creation in January of 1995. She is a frequent lecturer and instructor on legal issues affecting victims of domestic violence and serves on the Gender Equity Committee of the State Bar of Wisconsin.
