Professor Popper Named Bronfman Scholar in Administrative Law
American University Washington College of Law has named Professor Andrew F. Popper the Ann Loeb Bronfman Scholar in Administrative Law. This 3-year endowed chair stems from a donation from Ann Loeb Bronfman, an heir to the Seagrams fortune, who made the gift because of her connection with the late dean of AUWCL, Fred Anderson, a specialist in administrative law and environmental law.
As part of this position, Professor Popper is serving as an advisor to the Program on Law and Government and organizing a substantive program in administrative law each semester.
“I am honored and humbled to be the first incumbent to the Bronfman chair,” said Professor Popper. “This law school has a long tradition of excellence in the field of administrative law as it relates both to public service and to private practice. This chair provides a platform to help develop programs for all those interested in law and government including our students, alumni, and the public.”
Professor Popper teaches torts, administrative law, government litigation, and advanced administrative law. In 2016, he was elected law faculty member of the year. He is the recipient of American Bar Association awards for excellence in both tort and administrative law and has received American University’s highest faculty award, Scholar/Teacher of the Year. He is the author of more than 100 published books, law review articles, papers, and public documents.
