Western Michigan University Cooley Law School Distinguished Professor Emeritus Otto Stockmeyer has been awarded the 2020 Cohn Prize for Law and Public Policy by The Michigan Academy of Science, Arts & Letters.

Otto Stockmeyer

Stockmeyer was honored for his 2019 academic paper, “Three Faces of Restitution,” which traces the evolution of restitution as a subject of law school study and summarizes its principal components and practical applications. The paper is to be published in the upcoming issue of the Academy’s journal, Michigan Academician.

"My thanks go to WMU-Cooley Law School for its strong support of faculty scholarship, to the Michigan Academy for providing a means for sharing scholarship across disciplines, and to Judge Avern Cohn, whose generosity recognizes scholarship in the fields of law and public policy,” said Stockmeyer.

Named after Judge Avern Cohn of Detroit for his patronage of legal scholarship and the Academy, The Cohn Prize recognizes the best scholarly paper on law or public policy.
