The Professor Eric K. Yamamoto Emerging Scholar Award was established by the Conference of Asian Pacific American Law Faculty in honor of the achievements of Eric Yamamoto. Eric is an internationally-renowned authority on issues of redress and reconciliation, and he has written and spoken extensively about how healing the wounds of past injustice by “doing justice” now can reach deeply into a nation’s social fabric.
The Professor Eric K. Yamamoto Emerging Scholar Award will be given to an early-career law professor at any law school in the United States who demonstrates outstanding promise.
