Deborah Tuerkheimer Awarded  Ver Steeg Fellowship

Deborah Tuerkheimer of Northwestern Pritzker School of Law has been named a recipient of the 13th annual Dorothy Ann and Clarence L. Ver Steeg Distinguished Research Fellowship Award. 

The Ver Steeg Fellowship supports research and scholarship by tenured Northwestern professors whose work enhances the national and international reputation of the university.

Professor Tuerkheimer is one of the nation’s leading legal scholars, as shown by her tremendous contributions to criminal law, evidence, and feminist theory.

“I am most grateful to the Ver Steeg family for its extraordinary support of scholarship,” Professor Tuerkheimer said. “The award will help facilitate my continued research and writing aimed at improving our societal responses to sexual misconduct. It is a privilege to be working to advance this conversation, particularly in the #MeToo era when so much is in flux.”

She serves as an Adviser for ALI’s Principles of the Law, Student Sexual Misconduct: Procedural Frameworks for Colleges and Universities, and on the Members Consultative Group for the Model Penal Code: Sexual Assault and Related Offenses project.
