LAWRENCE — The American Business Law Journal (ABLJ) editorial board recently named University of Kansas School of Business professor Murray Levin the recipient of the 2012 Outstanding Reviewer Award. The ABLJ is a quarterly law review that covers business and corporate law topics. The journal is published by the Academy of Legal Studies in Business, an international association of almost 1,000 teachers and scholars in the fields of business law, legal environment and other law-related courses.
ABLJ editor in chief Jamie Pernkert announced Levin as the recipient of the award at this year's ALSB conference banquet in Kansas City.
"To receive the Outstanding Reviewer Award, Murray Levin has evidenced a long-standing commitment to the ABLJ," Prenkert said, "including being a consistently willing reviewer who provides excellent substantive and constructive feedback in reviews that are on time, numerous and are the exemplification of the kind of mentoring and collegial development that we strive to provide to our submitting authors."
Levin joined the KU School of Business in 1979 and has a long list of publications to his name. His academic areas include legal environment of business, contract law, real property law and alternative dispute resolution. Levin said that an award from a national organization naturally enhances one's reputation.
"It's always nice to have one's work receive special recognition. I'm happy to learn that the editors of the ABLJ and scholars in my field value and appreciate my contribution," Levin said, "and I certainly appreciate the recognition."
